Schubert/Zimerman D959, D960
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:00:28 AM »
Greetings.

A tempting new DG release; has anyone heard it?  Gramophone's rave review, and the mention of Zimerman's piano modifications is making me quite curious.

I haven't but there is a lukeworm recension of the CD.  You will probably have to use google translate.

The problem seems that Mr Zimermann decided to skip the pedal altogether, which is sort of a nonsense on Schubert.

It's very good if not revelatory. There was one sonata I liked better than the other but don't remember which now.

I liked it, but was not overwhelmed. The reviews I've read and heard (on Dutch public classical radio) so far were mixed.

Looks as if I may be able to answer my own Q:

Looks like UMG uploaded the content.  That bodes well for future, lesser recordings.
