Info zu Schubert: Piano Sonata No. 21, D. 960

Born in Reims in 1934, Philippe Entremont is one of the most famous pianists and French orchestra conductors. The exceptional career of Philippe Entremont began at the age of eighteen when he came to the international attention with his great success at New York’s Carnegie Hall, playing Jolivet’s piano concerto and Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Since then, he has pursued a top international career as a pianist, and for the last 40 years on the podium as a conductor as well. Phillipe Entremont is one of the most recorded artists of all time, he has appeared on many labels, including CBS, Sony, Teldec and Harmonia Mundi, and has garnered all of the leading prizes and awards in the industry.

For more than half a century Philippe Entremont has been thinking of Schubert Sonata No 21 D960 – this work is considerably haunting and captivating, in its simplicity it is very difficult too. The desire of recording it came later to him, much later, toward 2009, but it was still too early to record. This wonderful sonata has never left his mind and has had a home in his piano, and will remain there until the end... His thoughts about recording the Schubert fantasy for 4 hands was an immediate choice on his part.

Like the Sonata D 960 it is an absolute masterpiece. It was written about at the same time as the sonata and just a few months before the death of the composer, it is like a sonata in one movement. It is very hard to find words to describe the beauty of such a masterpiece. To listen you have to close your eyes and let yourself be invaded by the incredible power of its enchantment. Schubert is so grand! (Philippe Entremont)

Philippe Entremont
Born in Reims on June 7, 1934, Entremont studied at first with his musician parents (his mother was a pianist, his father a conductor), and then with Marguerite Long. As a teenager at the Paris Conservatoire, Entremont won many prizes, and, at sixteen, became a Laureate at the International Long/Thibaud Competition. The following year he began his major career, starting with a top prize in the Brussels Queen Elisabeth Competition, and subsequent tours through Europe, the United States and South America. He made his conducting debut on disc in 1968 directing the Collegium Musicum of Paris from the piano in Mozart’s Concertos Nos. 13 and 17, increasing his podium profile in later life as music director of the New Orleans Symphony (1980–86), principal conductor (1986–88) and music director (1988–89) of the Denver Symphony. He currently serves as Principal Guest Conductor for the Shanghai Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra and is Conductor Laureate of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Israel Chamber Orchestra.
