Schubert: Moments Musicaux No 2

The track has all been pinned down and now, exploiting the hinged facility of the baseboard, I can begin the task of installing the wiring underneath.

Schubert's Moments Musicaux No2

Or, 6 minutes of heaven on the piano.

I've already got three different recordings of this piece but decided to download another 9 to compare technique, interpretation etc.

What's interesting is the variation in pace. The quickest is 5 minutes 35 seconds; the longest is 7 minutes 18 seconds. I've included them all in a single playlist on iTunes for my convenience.

5m 35s   Melvyn Tan, on the piano forte.

5m 41s  Wilhelm Kempff born 1895

6m 0s  Maria Joao Pires - Portuguese
