Karl Ulrich Schnabel

One piano, four hands. Music of an intensely pastoral and nationalistic flavor, these are among the most romantic and folk inspired pieces ever composed. The feeling of an enchanted atmosphere is present at all times in this music. The Duo Schnabel generates just the right feeling of dance throughout.

Schnabel (1909-2001), the son of famed pianist Artur Schnabel, began playing piano at the age of five and made his concert debut in 1926. In the following decades, he pursued a brilliant solo career as well as reviving the piano duo tradition, first performing four-hands with his father, then his American wife, Helen Fogel, and later with Joan Rowland. During his long career, he was also the teacher of several of the great pianists of our time, including Leon Fleisher, Peter Serkin, Richard Goode and Claude Frank.

This video includes biographical material about the Schnabel family, comments by Schnabelís famous former students, and concentrates on Schnabel's later years as a master teacher. "Con Brio" is a musical term meaning spiritual fire, a cornerstone of Schnabel's teaching. The effect of this passion upon both pupil and audience is deeply moving. Schnabel also possessed a special genius to teach what most believe to be unteachable--musicality. Through the power of his dedication and example, he touched thousands during his remarkable life and career.

This is the 1983 debut album of Joan Rowland and Karl Ulrich Schnabel as Duo Schnabel. Schubert's Grand Duo is a towering masterpiece for one piano, four hands. The work has the proportions and the quality of a major symphony. It is surely no less important than any of Schubert's symphonies, and the Duo Schnabel performs the piece in this recording with an orchestral approach, without sacrificing the pianistic sonorities. The Variations in B flat are light-hearted, charming, and brilliantly conceived for the piano.
