Schubert on Sunday 2: Eric Lu plays D959

The young American pianist Eric Lu won the Leeds Piano Competition in 2018 at the age of 20. He has since released two discs, the second of music by Schubert, including the extraordinary penultimate sonata in A major, D959.

Some have found Lu’s performance over-romantic. But I like it greatly and find his interpretation very affecting indeed. Here he is playing the sonata in Warsaw in 2021.
