Clifford Curzon plays Schubert

Sunday Sounds

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.
