I have not heard this recording, but I own about 30 other releases from Forgotten Records. In many cases I have owned or at least known the original LPs, and I have not yet met any release from Forgotten Records, which I thought was over-filtered.

I ordered it after reading your comments and it arrived yesterday, it is by far and away the best transfer of these LPs that I’ve heard.

Nice to hear. So this may be the one to have.

Listened to the new Dalberto Beethovens, liked 'em, now looking at this.



I already have at least 5 other complete Schubert piano sonata sets (Bilson, Badura Skoda x2, Vermeulen, Endres) and 3 partial ones (Zacharias, Arrau, Cooper). Is this a worthwhile addition? Can't find samples on my main streaming sites.

You can find this on the web easily enough. On the basis of listening to 959/I through a very good hifi, the sound is exceptional, the tone a little hard but that’s not a criticism, just part of the interpretation, and the performance has character. Anyway you can easily find it for yourself.

Schubert’s interesting isn’t he? Strangely prescient of some contemporary ideas.
