From the elated dream to the bitter reality: to provide a proper rendering of Franz Schubert's music, with it's enormous range of expressions including all the intermediate tones, the instrument of choice must be the Fortepiano, if only for it's similitude to the pianos used during Schubert's lifetime. The model used in the present recording is based on the grand piano of the Viennese master Conrad Graf, an instrument that Schubert himself owned. It's six pedals allow Schubert's music to be played with multifaceted pliancy and depth. The skillful use of all these pedals, which in modern instruments have been reduced to two or three, opens up a multitude of sound facets, similar to doors that open up to a multitude of rooms, each decorated in it's own particular way and with it's own particular style.
