Analysis of performance issues in Sonata no. 21 in B-Flat Major, Franz Schubert, including a recording comparison

Rebeca Ordonez Rodriguez, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

Schubert's works bridge two styles—Classic Viennese and Romantic. It is necessary to understand performance practice and notation in Schubert using Classic Viennese conventions, combined with certain Romantic liberties. Schubert uses some expressive markings differently than his contemporaries, especially the hairpin and the use of the terms decrescendo and diminuendo in his late works. Even after gaining an understanding of performance practice in Schubert, pianists must struggle with the constraints of playing music on the modern instrument for which it was not intended. A recording comparison of Schnabel, Richter, and Bilson is valuable in furthering the understanding of how Schubert has been performed over the last century.^
