Schubert Piano Sonata in B flat Major, D 960

Piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat major D. 960 is the Twenty-first and last piano sonata by Franz Schubert. It was composed in September 1828, the year of his death. Way along with the sonatas D. 958 and D. 959, the last major works for composer’s piano, all written during his last months of life, between spring and autumn of 1828, a time when he was affected by tertiary syphilis.

A standard run lasts approximately forty minutes.
It is divided into four movements:

  1. Molto moderato
  2. Andante sostenuto
  3. Scherzo: Allegro vivace con delicatezza
  4. Allegro ma non troppo

Schubert’s sonata D. 960 is generally considered his greatest achievement in this form and one of the finest contributions to the long series of piano sonatas.
