Franz Schubert: “Arpeggione Sonata” With Bruno Philippe On Cello

In memory of an extinct instrument

Schubert was one of the most prolific composers ever, publishing an extraordinary number of works throughout his life. Interestingly, this work is scored for an instrument no longer in use. The arpeggione was a six stringed cello-like instrument invented in 1823. As this instrument didn’t catch on, brave cellists have to perform this work with two less strings… Listen to one of many Schubert works here.
