In times of uncertainty, music can provide wonderful consolation and a measure of hope and clarity.
One thing that I know for sure is that Schubert’s Piano Sonata in B flat Major D.960 is among my favourite pieces of music.
And so it was that, earlier this week, I posted this on my social media page:
“Starting the day with Schubert’s B flat Major Sonata D960 played by Wilhelm Kempff … wonderful pianism, and a balm to life’s uncertainties.”
The much respected John Humphreys commented:
“Wonderful – now try Clifford Curzon on YouTube!”
Well, here it is! And I’m sure you’ll agree that this is indeed a deeply enriching performance of this life-affirming masterpiece.
