An inspired pairing of Schubert's first completed piano sonata with one of the sublimely expansive masterpieces from his final year.

Garrick Ohlsson delivers rather special results.

"Not for a moment did I feel I was in anything but the safest of Brahmsian hands... I would welcome this disc into my library with open arms." – Gramophone (Brahms, CDA68334)

"With excellent recording quality throughout, this is in every respect an outstanding disc." – BBC Music Magazine (Elgar, CDA68295)


Garrick Ohlsson approaches both sonatas with a high sense of drama. This is big-boned pianism that rarely lacks immediacy or drive
The fluidity and poetry of Ohlsson’s playing are a joy. […] this new release of two piano sonatas spanning Schubert’s entire output in the genre is a fine achievement.
MusicWeb International
His [Ohlsson] articulation is never less than precise, his fingers always nimble, emphasising the horizontal lines of the music.
BBC Music Magazine April 2023
