Schubert: Piano Sonatas - Volume I
Series: Henle Music Folios
Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition
Composer: Franz Schubert
Editor: Paul Mies
This edition, extending to three volumes, contains all of Schubert’s piano sonatas including those that the composer left unfinished or that have come down to us as incomplete works. For Volumes I and II, photocopies of the autographs were available for D 537, 575 (1. movement: 92 bars; Scherzo: 104 bars; Andante: 59 bars; Finale: 236 bars), 784, 850, 894, 958, 959, and 960. In addition, the first editions of all the sonatas were consulted. D 537, 568, 575, 664, 784, 958, 959, and 960 were not published until after Schubert’s death. In these sonatas discrepancies between the autographs and first editions can therefore hardly be attributed to the composer. However, one exception is D 575 (see Comments at the end of the volume). It can be assumed that Schubert himself made the alterations in the other sonatas when they were published.
