Luba Edlina gives a sparkling account of piano works by Schubert.

This is a collection of rarely recorded piano works by Schubert

Luba Edlina is highly regarded internationally as the pianist from the Borodin Trio and is also a soloist of repute. She has recorded ten piano recital discs and over twenty piano trio discs on Chandos, all of which have achieved international critical acclaim.

It was a member of his close circle of friends who provided the starting point for his Thirteen Variations on a Theme by Anselm Hüttenbrenner, D576, written in August 1817. The A minor theme is taken from Hüttenbrenner’s First String Quartet. Much of Schubert’s piano music was written for dancing, in gatherings of friends or in more elevated social circles. The Twelve Ländler, D790, of May 1823, are one of the finest sets of what he called Deutsche, or German dances, showing the endless fertility of his melodic and harmonic invention.

Schubert’s major piano works are mostly in the form of sonatas, a genre that may have been the intended destination of a number of movements, which have survived as separate entities. For example, the Adagio and Rondo in E major, D506, issued twenty years after his death as his Op. 145, is now thought to have been put together by the publisher from fragments of two sonatas. Similarly the Adagio in E major, D613, although published separately in 1869, may have originally been the slow movement of a sonata in C major, which Schubert wrote in April 1818.

The scherzos anticipate the freestanding character pieces that Schubert composed in his later years, like the Moments musicaux and the two sets of Impromptus. The Allegretto in C minor, D915 was written into an autograph album of a friend in April 1827 a private counterpart to the free standing pieces just mentioned and the Three Piano Pieces, D946 that were written in May 1828. They were composed only a few months before his death probably as a sequel to the two sets of Impromptus.

‘…Luba Edlina’s well-recorded version is welcome. Her playing is forthright and intelligent…’
The Penguin Guide Yearbook on CHAN 9309 (Tchaikovsky)

‘…Edlina is thoroughly recommended to music lovers, teachers and learners…’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9731 (Schumann)

‘Throughout the disc, she [Luba Edlina] comes across as a supremely sensitive artist whose exquisitely refined and tasteful playing is altruistically placed at the service of the music’.
International Piano Quarterly

‘It would be hard to beat Luba Edlina’s interpretation… This gifted artist… plays with fluent phrasing and unfailing lyrical appreciation… There is magic here.’
Classic CD on CHAN 8948/9 (Mendelssohn)

‘The recorded sound is as warm and natural as the playing. It would be a pleasure to hear Edlina in larger works by Schubert and other early Romantics. She seems to have a real affinity for the style.’
