Sabbath musical delight: Schubert’s Impromptus D.899 and D.935, played by Alfred Brendel

The two sets of Impromptus are among Schubert’s most performed piano pieces, and remain accessible for a somewhat skilled amateur.

The first set of four was published during Schubert’s lifetime, the second set posthumously.

Below is a performance by a then still youngish Alfred Brendel.

Bonus: Khatia Buniatishvili performs Liszt’s piano arrangement of Schubert’s “Staendchen” (Serenade).

Have a nice weekend and Shabbat Shalom!
