We are delighted that YCAT artist, pianist, Ariel Lanyi released his ​Schubert's Moments Musicaux and D major sonata recording with Linn Records.

Ariel commented: ‘In the Moments Musicaux and the D major sonata, we see two facets of Schubert: the intimate and the panoramic. I see the Moments Musicaux as a series of snapshots of outdoor life … The D major sonata presents a panorama rather than snapshots … While many obvious differences exist between these two great works, the Moments Musicaux and the D major sonata do share one thing in common: they both end on a question mark. Rather than bring the music to a conclusive end, Schubert’s artistic courage allows him to leave the audience with the burden of finding a conclusion.’
