Schubert – Sonata no. 20 in a major (D. 959)
Schubert – Sonata no. 21 in B flat major (D. 960)

Schubert’s final piano sonatas, with their vast emotional range, are among the summits of Western music. In the second of two concerts, the Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams turns to the final two sonatas, with their symphonic sweep, balance of light and dark elements, lyricism and drama, grandeur and intimacy.

‘the sound Williams creates has an irresistible singing quality like no one else’s. His infallible technique serves a keen musical intelligence, with every phrase supported, balanced and imbued with unequivocal meaning’ – The Washington Post

‘simply heavenly playing… the innate musicality matched by deep perceptiveness’ – The Guardian
