Starting with perhaps Schubert’s ‘densest’, most monumental piano piece, the Wanderer-Fantasie, the listener will pass little by little to compositions which are more fragmented (and more tortured): the three marvelous Klavierstücke D 946, collected and so named by Brahms, probably originally representing Schubert’s third cycle of improvisations; Sonata D 840, with only two movements, remaining unfinished; and finally Sonata D 571, of which there remain only the exposition and a fragment of development of the first movement. It is as though Schubert gradually closed in on himself, passing from a unit to fragments.
