    Default Favorite Schubert pianists?

    Who are some of your favorite players of Franz Schubert's piano music?

    Currently, my favorite is Artur Schnabel. I think he had a beautiful sense of pacing with this music, near perfect to these ears. However, sometimes I am in the mood for a bit less hiss. More recent Schubert pianists that I like include Mitsuko Uchida, who recorded a great D960, and Alfred Brendel. I also love András Schiff's recent recordings of Schubert's music on a Viennese fortepiano from the period.

    A famous Schubert interpreter that I don't quite gel with is Sviatoslav Richter, whom I love in other repertoire. I believe one day it will "click", I probably just need to find the right performance.

    I know I created a thread recently about Schubert piano sonata cycles, but this is a completely different subject, I think. There are very great Schubert pianists who only recorded one or two out of the dozens of sonatas, Schnabel for example.
