Description: With their echoes of the Austrian countryside Schubert’s folk-type Ländler are dances in 3/4 time, precursors of the waltz. Composed towards the end of his life when Schubert wrote his greatest music, the sets of 16 and 17 Ländler are notable for their melodic inventiveness. Daniel Lebhardt (piano).
