Mathieu Gaudet, concert pianist, full-time emergency physician, and father of three young children, presents Schubert: The Power of Fate, the third and most recent chapter of his ambitious project to record the complete sonatas and major piano works of Franz Schubert. The album opens with the Sonata No. 7 in E-flat major, D. 568, a work composed in 1817, when Schubert was 20 years old and had already more than 500 compositions to his credit. That’s followed by the Sonata no. 15 in A Minor, D. 845, composed in 1825, a difficult time when Schubert was afflicted by poverty and disease.
