The Gramophone Guide describes the Wanderer-Fantasy as "one of his most disturbing works". It is indeed powerful and brooding stuff, but Jando never lets it lag or drag. This is an excellent performance of the Wanderer!
The two piano sonatas (# 4 and 13) are an added bonus; I bought the CD simply to get the Wanderer. I have Kempff's complete set of Schubert's piano sonatas; those and Schiff's are supposed to be the definitive recordings. But Jando comes very close, at a real bargain price. [His Naxos recording, with the Kodaly Quartet, of Schubert's Trout piano quintet, is also excellent.]
This CD is further proof (if any were needed) of Naxos' ability to produce outstanding recordings at amazingly low prices. Most of their recordings are "OK to good"; this one is excellent.

As always, Jeno Jando leads a tremendous example with his renditions of Schubert's piano music. He possesses all the right essentials and musically illustrates the best elements of Schubert's Sonatas. I know a lot of us out there like to stick to our Schubert "sets" of Uchida, Schiff, Brendel or Kempff. But Jando's dual achievements of lyricism and power in Schubert's piano music should be commended. Not counting the above mentioned elite pianists, I've heard a number of performers who approach Schubert with the mindset of emphasizing either Chopinesque lyricism or Beethovenian furor. Well, Jando happily marries both of these dispositions in his wonderful interpretations of the D. 537 and 664 Sonatas, and also with his foray into the Great Leviathan, the "Wanderer Fantasy".

The first work here, the copiously melodic thirteenth Piano Sonata in A major D. 664, is a delightful and magnificent composition. From the opening pastoral mood of the first movement, Schubert exhibits all the mellifluous and songful aspects we can expect from his much-adored themes. Jando's unyielding grace in the exposition makes the music truly sing; and his fierce attack in the development is outstanding. Regarding the Andante movement, I don't think it's possible to dislike this beautiful but fleeting piece. There are moments that hark upon Beethoven and also prophesize the lilting Romanticism of Schumann. I must warn the irritable that if the volume is turned up high enough while listening to this movement, you will hear Jando hum a bit. Honestly, I hate it when pianists do this, but Jando's humming is faint enough even at a moderate volume, that it shouldn't be too grating on the nerves. Jando is immediately forgiven, though, in his stirring delivery of the last movement, a frisky and tumultuous "Allegro".

Well, I was really looking forward to getting this CD because I don't have any recordings of these two sonatas. I am listening to it's premier, so to speak, as I type this comment. I am really ticked off. Why do performers think they have to hum along with the music as they play? I hate it, so this CD will go on the shelf and rot. I won't buy any more CD's by this guy, but I do have others where this does not occur. Other performers do it also. Emmanuel Ax and Glen Gould are two that come to mind. I threw the CD by Emmanuel Ax away, but I still have the one by Glen Gould - I rarely play it.

To be sure, I listen to my classical music with headphones while at the computer. With a good pair of headphones you hear so much more. Perhaps when this CD is played on a home player/speakers one doesn't hear the humming.

Bottom line? If you don't mind the humming, or can't hear it, then I would recommend this CD.
