The sonatas were 'neglected' because Schubert didn't get them published, and the manuscripts were stashed away for some time after his death. Even after they were found they were mostly unplayed before Schnabel, because of the tendency of the virtuosi to perform mostly their own compositions. You can Google for details.

:cool:
Only the 3 last sonatas 10 years after death... The other sonatas were not more successful therefore...

I place many others Piano/Keyboard Sonatas ahead of Schubert's, but I do enjoy occasional forays into Lewis, Lupu, Sokolov, and Uchida, with 70's Brendel for complete Impromptus.
I saw Sokolov quite recently and was blown away by the interpretation of the D845! A real great little man

Thumbs up for Uchida!!!

I prefer Lupu for the Impromptus...unrivalled!

Brendel is really great too! I have his lives... they are gigantic!

And still forgotten Arrau (why is Arrau so rarely mentioned!), listen to the final sessions....

I love Schubert...:tiphat:
