The Music Plays On — Schnabel Plays Schubert

Arthur Schnabel

One of the great musicians of the first half of the twentieth century and someone who I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the Austrian pianist and composer Arthur Schnabel had an affinity for the music of Schubert. While Schnabel is justifiably lauded for recording the first complete traversal of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, I consider his recordings of Schubert to be an even greater contribution.
