Moonlight (DXL 1166)
Moonlight (DXL 1166)
We are delighted to announce the release of the much anticipated Volume 6 'Moonlight' from Martin Roscoe’s complete Beethoven Sonata series. Composed by a young Beethoven at the age of twelve, these early piano masterpieces perfectly illustrate the daringness and originality of the young composer. Piano Sonata in C sharp minor, 'Moonlight' is the most famous work of Beethoven's piano works.  Martin Roscoe notes how ground-breaking it is with the composer's choice of key - C sharp minor was hardly ever used by composers, and secondly the opening with an Adagio slow triplet movement to produce a hypnotic calm while the funereal dotted rhythm of the main theme evokes the feeling of tragedy.  Producer Mike George adds that the F minor sonata is probably the most interesting and forward-thinking of Beethoven's early sonatas. “[these accounts] go out of their way to emphasis the freshness and cheekiness of Beethoven, for all his indebtedness to Haydn. No listener will be disappointed…” In The Beginning (Vol. 5) DXL 1165, BBC Music Magazine,  February 2016 **** “perfect musical judgement and a formidable technique from Martin Roscoe” Waldstein, DXL 1162, BBC Radio 3 " I think Roscoe's way with them is nigh-on perfect” Pathetique, DXL 1161 Gramophone Magazine, June 2010 View booklet
