Back to Schubert . . .
I had a Schubert phase last year where I’d listen to a lot of his compositions. I also learned his Impromptu Op. 142 No. 2. I sort of got out of that phase for a while until recently when I encountered his collection of the later Impromptus (which are not as well-known as Op. 142 and Op. 90). These are his Klavierstücke D.946. They’re pretty Schubertian (triplets, beautiful melodies, repeated left hand chords), but still there exist moments of (in the words of Ashish Xiangyi Kumar, the YouTube channel I visited quite a bit) “nervous quality.” Nevertheless, I find them quite charming and addictive (I’ve been looping through them too many times these past few days). I hope you enjoy :).
P.S.: my favorite passage is from the second piece, C section, from 20:58 – 26:33. I personally think that these cascading melodies are so beautiful, haunting, and passionate. Pianist Avdeeva’s performance is also very intimate and sweet.
