Volume III of Schubert’s Piano Sonatas includes the tuneful, dance-like Sonata in G major D 894 (1827), sometimes called the “Fantasie” sonata, as well as the three great sonatas in C minor, A major and B-flat major (D 958, 959 and 960), which were conceived as a triptych and constitute the composer’s greatest contribution to the piano sonata genre. The works pay homage to the three late sonatas of Beethoven.

This scholarly-critical Urtext edition is based on the definitive musical text of the “New Schubert Edition” and presents the works in a spacious new engraving with practical page turns. It includes an informative Foreword and detailed notes (Ger/Eng) on central performance practice issues such as the use of pedals and Schubert’s distinctive manner of notating accents. It is rounded off by a Critical Commentary (Eng) with performance-related alternative readings. Schubert’s drafts for individual sonata movements can be accessed on the Bärenreiter website.
