  • Daniel Barenboim
Daniel Barenboim will be giving four concerts presenting an extensive anthology of Schubert’s sonatas. The sonatas in this concert show the Austrian composer following the path, in a highly personal manner, opened up by Beethoven’s thirty-two sonatas.

This concert marks Daniel Barenboim’s final Schubertiade. He will be presenting two key works by the composer. First, Schubert’s Sonata D. 84 — a solid structure composed in 1825, and which was the first of his sonatas to be honoured with publication. Schubert dedicated this work to Archduke Rudolph of Austria and performed it on tour. It was a sure privilege for those able to attend this début. The path to success for his last sonata — in B flat major, which he finished just two months before his death — was a long one, and it only began to be included in the piano repertoire in the 1950s. Yet its inexhaustible richness has now made it Schubert’s most frequently performed sonata, on a par with Beethoven’s most popular works.
