Website Artur Schnabel Foundation

As a Pianist he achieved fame during his lifetime, as a composer he has been recently more and more noticed and appreciated.  Starting with compositions for his own use he created Piano Pieces, Lieder and, in 1901 his first large work the Piano Concerto in d-minor. In  the following years he composed mostly chamber music, especially for strings. After his emigration to New York in 1939 he dedicated himself to the larger symphonic forms.  

Since 2005 Peermusic Classical, in collaboration with the Schnabel Music Foundation, is publishing the works of Artur Schnabel. On this site see our latest editions, some of them published for the first time.
