Re: Franz Schubert - fav piano sonata set

Hi, Schubert fans, favorite piano works set?

I'm seeing a few names that I'm a little unfamiliar such as Leonskaja, Zacharias, and Dalberto. I do own several single discs from Uchida, Brendal, Wosner, and Richter, but there are some earlier sonatas I'd like to get and I'm always up for duplicates of some of my favorites.

Any thoughts? Much appreciated!

PD

EDIT:  Whoopsie!  I just deleted a couple of postings as I see this thread is just about his sonatas.  Let me know whether or not you're interested in me reposting them.

I'd love to hear more recordings of the G major sonata, D894. I only have one, Marta Deyanova's gargantuan, Brucknerian reading on Nimbus (clocking in at 17 seconds short of an hour  :o) and I think I owe it to myself to hear a more "normal" take. It's a beautiful work.
D894 depends heavily on the soft and moderator pedals, which produced effects impossible to replicate on the modern piano. The best overall recordings are on period instruments: Yasuyo Yano, who is on the slow side, and Schiff (ECM) who is closer to average. Andreas Staier is also worth hearing, as are most of the other period instrument performances.

For modern instruments, Eduard Erdmann’s performance is necessary to hear, even though most people probably won’t like it; it offers a very different perspective on the music.

Thank you for all the recs, friends. I certainly have a lot of exploring to do now.

I did purchase the Elisabeth Leonskaja set (see pic below), 6 cds and very good reviews for $20 brand new was a no-brainer.

I have a great love for Ingrid Haebler artistry :
   

(I am also glad to see that she is still with us ... 92 years old this year!)
