    Are there any particularly good recordings of Schubert's solo piano music on a period instrument? Last time I checked not many recordings seemed to exist, but that was years ago.

    Yes, but there’s also something very special about Semerjian I think - or maybe it’s just me, it’s a sonata I’m interested in.

    It's a shame he doesn't appear to have recorded other sonatas.

    She makes a lot of others sound very plain.

    For a period instrument, this page has a link to Linn Records, perhaps suggesting that the fragments heard here are available from Linn in entirety. https://periodpiano.com/franz-schubert-winterreise/

    He seems to have disappeared after recording some Mozart and that Schubert.

    Agreed mostly with the above but in changed order....

    deceased : My number one is Richter and then Schnabel, Vladimir Sofronitsky and some Maria Yudina

    alive: Lupu, Volodos, Zimerman, Valery Afanassiev, Lonquich, Pires and some Imogen Cooper

    I got into Schubert with Brendel many years ago but one day was hearing the Wanderer but failing to get any emotional reaction from it until I stumbled across a Library LP of Sviatoslav Richter's interpretation.... My world came stumbling down.... and could no longer hear Brendel....

    Anyone got an opinion about Youri Egorov’s Moments Musicaux here?

    I really like Annie Fischer's Schubert.

    When I want to hear Schubert, I get out my Kempff set. He has a very stable, staid way of playing that seems to suit Schubert.

    Yes. As usual, your recommendations are hard-to-find and overpriced. This one's $88.88 on Amazon. It would be nice to have a link.

    You do realize Amazon is a joke with their scalper prices? You can find his Schubert and a lot more in a 10 CD set entitled A Life In Music on the Etcetera label. https://www.grooves-inc.com/youri-eg..._medium=artist
