Volume 2 of the first complete recording of Barry Cooper’s new edition of Beethoven Sonatas by Martin Roscoe Martin Roscoe is a versatile musician who flourishes in performance, whether as a concerto soloist, recitalist or chamber musician. He is an artist who endeavours always to serve the composer and the music. His enduring popularity and solid reputation are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship which is allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.

Roscoe is now recording the complete Beethoven piano sonatas for the Deux-Elles label and this first collection includes Beethoven’s popular Pathetique sonata, on which he comments “a work of peculiar intensity and dynamic energy which can still blow away its listeners with its power and freshness….The Pathétique remains a huge thrill to perform: I’d even say I find it much more exciting now than when I first learnt it some thirty-five years ago!”

 "The second volume of Roscoe’s effort to record the entire Beethoven  sonata cycle is refreshing and delightful. His interpretation of the Waldstein Sonata reflects his approach to the rest of these sonatas: clarity of expression, steadfast rhythm, and sound musical sense. There is nothing exaggerated... Roscoe’s transparent yet formidable playing allows the music to speak for itself... Much recommended."

Sang Woo Kang - American Record Guide - May/June 2013

 "... I was delighted  bt Roscoe’s playing of Nos 4 and 21 ... which had wonderul detail, drive, energy and even some humor ..."
