Info for Schubert: Piano Sonatas III



The first two parts of pianist William Youn's Schubert cycle were already praised in the international press for their "flawless, perfectly realised naturalness" (FONO FORUM) and the intensive tracing "into Schubert's lost world" (Münchner Merkur).

With this third release, William Youn now completes his recording of all 21 of Schubert's piano sonatas. "Schubert's music is something for lonely souls," says William Youn. "It touches, comforts and rebuilds its listeners in the darkest hours, it makes them dance, dream, wander and hope." Youn has combined great and well-known sonatas such as the lilting Sonata in D major D 850 or the restrained Sonata in A minor D 845 with very early sonatas that are rarely heard.

These include the Sonata No. 2 in C major D 279, in which the orchestral influences can be heard particularly well and the string quartet can almost be glimpsed, or the dramatic two-movement "Reliquary" Sonata No. 15 D 840. And he has even recorded sonatas that have remained in fragments for this complete recording, such as the Sonata in F minor D 625 or the Sonata in E major D 157.

William Youn says of his relationship with Schubert's sonatas: "His 21 piano sonatas are the compressed legacy of this short but incredibly rich musical life. Learning these sonatas, I felt like I was walking in his footsteps, following his trials and failures to the mastery of the last sonatas, where he finds his own voice entirely."

William Youn
The award-winning pianist William Youn has been described by critics as a “genuine poet” with “sovereign, bravura technique of touch”. After early studies in Korea and in the USA, William again changed continents to study at the Hanover University of Music and at the Piano Academy Lake Como, where he worked regularly with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Dmitri Bashkirov, Andreas Staier, William Grant Naboré and Menahem Pressler.

Based now in his adopted hometown of Munich, Germany, William performs internationally from Berlin via Seoul to New York with major orchestras, including Cleveland Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Belgium, the Mariinsky Theater and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.

As chamber musician, William enjoys close collaborations with Nils Mönkemeyer, Sabine Meyer, Julian Steckel, Carolin Widmann, Veronika Eberle, Johannes Moser and the Signum Quartet. He also performs increasingly on fortepiano at venues such as the Mecklenburg Vorpommern Festival and the Mozart Festival in Würzburg.

William has recorded for Sony Korea and Ars Produktion. Other recordings include a disc of works by Brahms with Mönkemeyer, and 'Mozart with Friends' with Sabine Meyer, Julia Fischer and Mönkemeyer, which was named Chamber Music Recording of the Year at ECHO Klassik 2017. His recording of Mozart's complete piano sonatas for Oehms Classics has recieved extensive critical acclaim. His first solo album for Sony Classical will be released internationally in October 2018.

This album contains no booklet.
