Franz Schubert | Sonata for arpeggione and pianoforte

The arpeggione, also called guitar violoncello, invented in Vienna in 1823, is a rarity among musical instruments. Schubert was so fascinated by it that he wrote one of his most beautiful sonatas for this instrument. Martin Jantzen plays this sonata on the rare instrument, congenially accompanied by Flora Fabri who is playing a Brodmann grandpiano built in the same era, from the instrument collection of Schloss Weißenbrunn Foundation.
