I am an insomniac, so I often woke up in unholy morning time and simply can’t find my rest. In those time I like to listen music. When I first heard this beautiful piece, it was around four a.m. and I had headphones, because I didn’t wanted to woke up my beloved. Whole time I listened to each note, I was looking at her beautiful sleeping face and feeling how I am falling in love with her again. It was the most beautiful morning in my life.

I suffer from Parkinson's disease and frequently go without sleep for days. Without music and the availability of it on YouTube I could not cope with my life. Pieces like this have often brought me great strength and tremendous joy when everything else around seems to mean absolutely nothing . Life without music would not be worth living and I'm totally convinced that great composers who also suffered much in their lives knew that they were in some way responsible for leaving behind them the means by which others could survive and take shelter from the storm. From the mists of time they reach out,, pat our heads and whisper in our ears that everything's going to be alright. How fortunate we are to have those heroes who went before.

Merveilleux moment musical. Shubert exprime toute sa sensibilité dans cette oeuvre. Merci pour ce partage.

This is a beautiful performance, but I think it has the same issue most modern performances of classical music have. Today, it's classical music to us. Back then, it was popular music. There were no recordings, you heard it because the best two pianists at the party sat down and played it while you drank and listened. Many of these musical ideas were new and exciting and modern at the time. There would've been a lively, crowd-pleasing atmosphere, the pianists would've played up the dramatic moments in the music even more than this.

We're a little deaf to classical music today because it's no longer our cultural moment. For example, the melodic theme in this music, with its grace notes and percussive repetitions, was actually pretty exotic and ornamental and mysterious. And listen to what Schubert wrote at 12:51. This was entertainment, this was drama, this was what people had instead of a television. We're a much more passive audience to this music today than Schubert's audience was then, and the disposition of the audience shapes the posture of the performance.

Every year at Thanksgiving, my dad and grandpa play this piece. I've grown up listening to it once a year, and I have so many fond memories associated with it. <3

Quatre mains, ce n'est pas trop pour interpréter ce bijou d'artisanat élaboré par Schubert. Les deux pianistes restituent les gracieux élans de l'âme de l'auteur tout en sachant revenir à une sereine et calme interprétation de la partition, le moment venu.

This is a lovely, very soulful!! Schubert piece. I started appreciating him more and more.
This piece was used in a 1988 Movie Madame Sousatzka, about a young pianist from India taught by an excentric Russian, in London, played by Shirley Mclaine.great movie, full of lovely classical music. I just found the full video on you tube in english, portuguese subtitles. This Schubert is at 42..? And at the end, orchestra added.
Thank you for posting this, i loved it in the movie but did not know it was a Schubert. Also in movie Sunshine with Ralph Fiennes.
What a wonderful gift you have given me!!!

Listen at midnight, close your eyes and feel the despair mysteriously turn to love in your heart. The beauty this man possessed deep inside his soul will never cease to amaze me. Four hands sing together in perfect harmony. Astonishing.

As usual, can’t sleep. 1,00 am, hit on this and now definitely can’t sleep as listening to this wonderful performance. So, insomnia has its rewards as my appreciation of classical music grows.
