Andrea Lucchesini’s career continues discreetly in the shadow of more mediatized Italian pianists. The star pupil, like Nelson Goerner, of the great Maria Tipo, Lucchesini has invested a lot of his time into concerts and recording. After becoming known for his interpretations of Luciano Berio’s music, in particular his concerto Echoing Curves directed by the composer himself, he has recorded the integrity of Beethoven’s sonatas for the label Stradivarius.Over the last few years, Lucchesini has concentrated on Schubert, “my great love”, he calls him. These two very different composers on the cusp of romanticism fascinate Andrea Lucchesini who presents here his first volume dedicated to the late works of Schubert. These works were written at a time when the composer of Lieder returned to composing sonatas amidst greats like Beethoven who also coincidentally lived in the same town.For Lucchesini, Schubert remains an enigma. The man left behind almost no written documents, he never stayed put in one precise residence and no one could understand his shyness, agitation, nor his latent homosexuality. “Rediscovering his final works”, says Andrea Lucchenini, “showed me the difference between the artist who entertained his friends and the composer who worked in solitude without any prospect of being published nor played.” Such solitude that longs to break free can be heard clearly in this album, particularly in the interpretation of Andantino of Sonata D. 959 through which troubling phantoms move. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The three sonatas in this recording date from the spring of 1816. Their modest dimensions, 'for pianoforte with accompaniment of violin' - an old-fashioned formulation evoking the eighteenth century - led to their being published as 'Sonatinas', even though their facility is only apparent and in no way reflects their nature, nor Schubert's intentions. They correspond to a fertile period for the composer and are contemporary with his Fourth Symphony, his Stabat Mater, the composition of his opera Die Bürgschaft, much chamber music and, of course, lieder - the final draft of Marguerite at the Spinning Wheel and the Erlkönig date from March 1816. Schubert also experienced great personal changes, and with the support of a circle of acquaintances that expanded in the direction of an artistic, intellectual and liberal elite that was betting on his talent, he took it upon himself fully to become a composer. These sonatas are the work of a composer aged 19 who, in admiration of Mozart, drew close to the worlds of Weber and Beethoven. Indeed, the spirit of Mozart runs right through these three sonatas, he who represents the crucial reference at this time, and certainly was such for Schubert. Yet without imitating the master, Schubert rewrites the 'Mozartian' sonata, romanticises it, opens it out to the new century. Though the style is far from the richly varied and virtuoso approach of Beethoven's sonatas, it should not be underestimated, and it is more interesting to see what they already contain that is typical of and unique to their composer, and what heralds his future style. Two Muso artistes, both with long experience as chamber musicians, have got together to play these magnificent pieces: the excellent violinist Stéphanie Paulet and the pianist Daniel Isoir, who for the occasion plays an outstandingly beautiful Schott piano of 1835. © Muso/PIAS

To the two collections of lieder found after the death of Schubert, the editor Haslinger added a fourteenth lied and gave the overall title of 'Swan Song'. Not a veritable cycle, but very much immersed in the intimacy of the composer's last moments of life, nostalgic, heart-rending, desperate and eventually soothing, it is this journey that the performers undertake here, with an Erard piano from 1859, miraculously preserved, bringing a unique colour to this masterpiece. © Klarthe
