    Hi Richard,

    Funny, in a span of two days I have listened to two separate players play a Mozart sonata, and now it happens again with a Schubert sonata. I just heard a Swiss pianist names Andreas Hilfiger play this piece in a concert the other day. I admit that I'm not crazy about long sonatas, but from what I've listen to so far, you play this very well. I do like that Schubert-Liszt Serenade. I played it a long time ago but forgot about it. But getting back to the sonata - the last movement does not play all the way to the end. You should check this and resubmit the file.
    Thanks. ~Monica

    Hi Richard,

    thank you much for this Schubert's music, which I love. It is worth to take some care about the audio. At least the noise can be reduced by means of processing. Here attached the processed andante sostenuto, my second preferred movement within all Schubert sonata. (My preferred one is the andantino of the D959.)
    If you wish, I'm keen to processed the other files too. But I would well understand that you prefer to stay with the original sound.

    Hi, thanks very much!

    I upload the complete version of the final movement; about processing - I do not mind as far as it doesn't harm the original sound.
    For me there was not too much noise there in the original recording - I would let the forum administrators decide ;)

    Thank you very much for your attention, I really appreciate it.

    Always happy to be on board with all of you,
    Richard

    Haha yes, take the easy way out why don't you :wink:
    But we are not going to decide that for you ! Once certain standard are met (which is of course the case here) it is entirely up to the pianist how he wants the recoring to sound. If kind members like Didier or Andreas feel like brushing up the sound quality, that's between you and them. But, do decide that before the recordings go up on the site, to avoid double work.

    Oh, I am sorry - I meant for me I was allright with the original sound - only if the administrators would feel it was too bad, than I would of course prefer to reprocess them.
    My apologizes and many thanks :)

    I have not listened to the sonata yet, that will take some time. The Schubert Impromptus seem very well played to me, though I am not an expert on Schubert. A couple of pinky slips in the a major impromptu, and the sound is a bit recessed, but otherwise very enjoyable playing in good style and taste.
    I don't feel anything for the Liszt items, and your playing (which seems fine enough) does not convince me. That might just be my problem though.

    I've also listened to the Sonata. I love playing this one when I have time and are in the required Zen-like mood
    (which doesn't happen all too often). Not being a Schubert expert I have no definite ideas on how it should or
    should not be played. Your is an affectionate and concentrated reading about which I can find little to criticize.
    Some little fluffs but that goes with playing long pieces live. Maybe a little too generous pedal usage here and there
    and I think the last mvt could be more lyrical and less hectic. Pity that your recorded sound is a bit harsh
    with a lot of hiss. All the same, a very good achievement. You seem to have the right spirit for Schubert !

    Hi Richard!

    I listened to the Impromptus - very impressive! I like your concept of No. 3 more than the one of No. 4 - No. 3 has a good flow, whereas No. 4 sounds sometimes (beginning and ending) a little short-breathed to me - nonetheless overall a beautiful performance. Thanks for sharing!

    Greetings

    Jan

    Thank you friends! I honestly say that I truly love Schubert above all :) Hopefully I will play some more of him soon... but you know, being mainly a singer accompanist, my main repertoire remains his tremendous legacy of songs ;)
    We did with my friend Der Erkonig recently and I hope to share this on my YouTube channel, so you could check it out afterwards if interested.
    Warm greetings to all pianophiles from the Czech Republic,
    all yours Richard
