The program showcases Ashkenazy at the peak of his powers as a pianist, performing Schubert's Impromptus D.946 Nos. 1 & 2 and the Wanderer Fantasy, alongside Schumann's widely-loved Arabeske and Piano Sonata No. 1 – a piece that is certainly an unusual and interesting choice for such a recital. His calm exterior means that all of his energy is projected into infusing this performance with the variety each piece affords.
