Evgeni Bozhanov plays Schubert Sonata D 960 , B dur , 2nd mov

This movement is from the Cliburn Competition.  It never sounds as if it were played at a Competition.

For the full sonata, start with the video of the opening of the first movement, and subsequent movements are shown in the middle of the activity box that shows up when the current video is completed.

Bozhanov's facial movements seem to come from feeling the 'character' of the notes or phrases.  This appears to be very effective for his playing but it is a distraction for many who see them.  For some, it's best to close the eyes.
