Buzz: During his last years in America, Artur Schnabel’s fame as a Beethoven interpreter - the Beethoven interpreter on the piano - was so pervasive that many almost forgot his earlier love affair with the music of Schubert, perhaps even more rapturous. Not until 1927 did he perform the entire cycle of thirty-two Beethoven sonatas. Well before the turn of the century, however, he had plunged into the music of Schubert, performing the great lieder (including the “male” cycles, Winterreise and Schöne Müllerin) with Therese Behr, an alto he would marry in 1905. When the first of several Schnabel trios came into being (with the violinist Alfred Wittenberg and the cellist Anton Hekking) it played both Schubert trios (c. 1902). In 1909, Schnabel performed the Trout Quintet with members of the legendary Bohemian Quartet. It is to the credit of Theodor Leschetizky, Schnabel’s mentor, that, although primarily interested in glittery virtuoso fare beloved of nineteenth-century pianists, he perceptively advised young Schnabel to investigate the Schubert sonatas, virtually unheard - and unheard of - at the time. Contrast this to the (possibly apocryphal) story about Rachmaninoff: When one if his admirers suggested that he perform some Schubert sonatas for the centenary of the composer’s death (1928), he reportedly answered, “Schubert wrote sonatas?” Schnabel, of course, gave a Schubert cycle that year. --Unfortunately, Schnabel left far less of his masterful Schubert than of his Beethoven. The five compact discs in this set are, for all intents and purposes, his complete legacy devoted to his first love, newly restored from the best sources by transfer wizard Mark Obert-Thorn.
