Another piece that makes me want to bring up the question: Why is it not performed more often? What do you guys think about this piece by Schubert? It seems to me to be one of his most underrated and neglected pieces. I can't see why it shouldn't be regarded as high as some of his other masterpieces, like the Impromptus and the last three sonatas... Or is it just me?

It's certainly one of my favourites. I especially love the slow movement and the slightly unsettling (in that uniquely Schubertey way) finale.

Personally, I always found this piece to be a bit less interesting than some of his other works. It just doesn't have the same charm to it as the other earlier sonatas like D568 or 575. Then again, I always found Schubert to be at his best when expressing either pure joy or a sort of melancholy nostalgic mood.

Of course, that's just my opinion. The sonata is still wonderfully crafted and underperformed. Another one of his gems is the D850. If you haven't listened to it, definitely do so. It's an incredibly fun piece, both to listen to and to play.

I think D845 is a masterpiece.

That is interesting. I can sort of understand what you mean with the charm, in that the first movement is quite austere for being Schubert, the third movement is odd and the last movement spooky somehow. But I consider the second movement to be as much Schubert as something can become, and charming is one of THE words I would ascribe to it. It might be the most charming and pure movement in all of his sonatas for me.
