This dual album as a set has been compiled from several releases that Andsnes made with Ian Bostridge on Schubert's works.
It would suggest strongly that the pianist did not concentrate on these late Schubert sonatas as a continuous genre of compositions.
And it does show on the recording.
The works are played very conservatively, with little imagination, and often in a detached approach.
Too bad, because there are lots of keen contemproary competitions in the field of these late Schubert piano sonatas: Uchida, Brendel, Richter, Perahia, Pollini...
All the above pianists approached these works with a sense of summit conquering since the release of the great box set by Wilhelm Kempff in the mid-20th century.
Suffice it to mention that Andsnes has not fully grasped the contents and the style of these late sonatas. Despite the fact that he recorded them individually with some lieders of the composer, this did not carry with it a marked sense of awakening of the lyrical style that lies deeply embalmed in these works.
