Even at a very advanced age, the great pianist Paul Badura Skoda is always good for a surprise: His new CD recording with Genuin is perhaps one of the most unusual recordings, one of the most daring tonal experiments seen in recent years. Schubert’s final sonata, the wonderful B-flat major, has been recorded by Badura-Skoda, but not just once: It is heard on three different instruments in interpretations which could not be more distinctive from one another: On an 1826 Graf fortepiano (from when the work was composed), a 1923 Bösendorfer and a 2004 Steinway grand. More history and more vibrancy in its presentation could not be packed into a single disc. Superb!
