Helen Schnabel sought out gems of the piano literature for her recordings that had largely been neglected. Here she plays the original transcription by Beethoven of his famous violin concerto (with C.F. Adler and Vienna Orchestra), plus two little known works for solo piano. Ludwig van Beethoven: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, No. 6, Op. 61. Carl Maria von Weber: Sonata No. 4 in e minor, Op. 70, G. Francesco Malipiero: Poemi Asolani (Poems of Asolo).
Karl Ulrich Schnabel was highly regarded as a master teacher by a whole generation of pianists for his deep knowledge and understanding of the essence of the great classical composers. On this CD he performs what he taught, exquisite renditions of Mozart and Beethoven piano solo works. The CD comprises Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Fantasy in c minor, K. 475; Sonata in c minor, K. 457; Andante in F Major, K. 616; and Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata in E Major, Op. 109.
K.U. Schnabel accompanied his mother, the eminent Lieder singer Therese Behr already as a teenager. Here he received the deep and intimate knowledge necessary to interpret the classical composers including Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert with the incredible breadth of emotions he demonstrated and also taught throughout his life. This all Schubert CD comprises the Sonata in a minor, Op. 42, D. 845, the Moments Musicaux, Op. 94, D. 780, and the Wanderer Fantasy, Op. 15, D. 760.
Schnabel (1909-2001), the son of famed pianist Artur Schnabel, began playing piano at the age of five and made his concert debut in 1926. In the following decades, he pursued a brilliant solo career as well as reviving the piano duo tradition, first performing four-hands with his father, then his American wife, Helen Fogel, and later with Joan Rowland. During his long career, he was also the teacher of several of the great pianists of our time, including Leon Fleisher, Peter Serkin, Richard Goode and Claude Frank.

This video includes biographical material about the Schnabel family, comments by Schnabel’s famous former students, and concentrates on Schnabel's later years as a master teacher. "Con Brio" is a musical term meaning spiritual fire, a cornerstone of Schnabel's teaching. The effect of this passion upon both pupil and audience is deeply moving. Schnabel also possessed a special genius to teach what most believe to be unteachable--musicality. Through the power of his dedication and example, he touched thousands during his remarkable life and career.
