Franz Schubert: Allegretto For Piano In C Minor By Paul Lewis
A solemn study for a patient pianist
While Franz Schubert wrote chiefly in minor keys, he manages to avoid the sadness typically evoked by such composition choice. However, this piece is lamenting in its style and forces the pianist to pause longer than might be comfortable for them… or the audience. Nonetheless, by the end, Schubert has placed complete confidence back in the listener. Take in the Austrian composer’s tentative piano work.
