#63 The Smell of Persistence

The smell here is really importune. Pa-pa-pa-pam! Pa-pa-pa-pa-pam! It's coming from everywhere, it's attacking from all directions. Tirelessly, persistently, steadily.

At all, the movement sounds comprehensive and exhausting. If I were Schubert, I'd drop after the first movement. This sonata does not need two movements.

Composer: Franz Schubert
Work: Piano Sonata in C Major, D. 840, I. Moderato
Recording: Imogen Cooper
