ST. PAUL, Minn. — Alfred Brendel says that Schubert "evokes the memory of Beethoven and the classical period," in his last three piano sonatas.

Imogen Cooper, a former Brendel student, revels in all of the mists of memory in these pieces but also gives Schubert a distinctive and personal voice.

Cooper's performance of the Sonata in A Major from a Frederic Chopin Society concert on Oct. 6, 2013, is in this week's Regional Spotlight.
