SCHUBERT // Piano Sonata in C major D840, ‘Reliquie’

Jean-Marc Luisada,

At the heart of Schubertian Romanticism: the pianism of Jean-Marc Luisada.

, , ,

Jean-Marc Luisada knows the song of Romanticism, the voice of the soul that permeates all of Schubert’s output. In the Sonata no.15, the melodies that spring from the pen of a young composer of twenty-two are deceptive. The tranquillity of the pastoral atmosphere is often answered by the harsh suffering of reality. The Sonata no.21 reveals a still more tragic universe, for Schubert could sense that he had very little time left to live. Jean-Marc Luisada paints, with supreme elegance, the portrait of a composer who is at once rebellious and resigned, sometimes voluble, sometimes almost mute, seeking some consolation in the inspiration of his memories and regrets. An overwhelming experience.
