Maria Donska (piano) Sonata in C minor (D.958) Schubert Schubert's last three piano sonatas were, apart from 'The Shepherd on the Rock,' the last of his important compositions; they were written as a trilogy in September 1828, two months before his death. The last was completed on the twenty-sixth; and Schubert played all three, it is said, at a private party the following day. He intended to dedicate them to Hummel, but they were eventually published ten years after his death, with a dedication to Schumann. The first of the three, in C minor, consists of a tempestuous Allegro, a deeply moving Andante with some remarkable changes of key, a fast-moving Minuet and Trio, and an almost moto perpetuo Finale.
