Following the success of Volumes 1 and 2, we are delighted to present The Final Trilogy - Volume 3 of Martin Roscoe’s complete Beethoven Sonata series. Martin Roscoe is a versatile musician who endeavours always to serve the composer and the music. His enduring popularity and solid reputation are built on a deeply thoughful musicianship that is allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.
Martin is one of the most regularly played pianists on BBC Radio 3 and they highly praised his second disc in this series 9Waldstein DX 1162) describing it as "one of the truly great recordings of the Waldstein Sonata ... perfect musical judgement and a formidable technique from Martin Roscoe"
"These are thoroughly musical performances, with particularly fine accounts of the slow movements ... a welcome addition." - pathetique, Beethoven Sonatas Vol 1, BBC Music Magazine - July 2010
"Coloured perhaps by a personal fondness for Op.10, I think Roscoe’s way with them is nigh-on perfect ... I urge you to especially hear his handling of the C minor Sonata’s Adagio ’a heartbreaking cry of regret that only a refined pianist with the wisdom of experience would bring off quite as well as this." - ’Pathetique’ - Beethoven Sonatas Vol 1 - Gramophone magazine - June 2010
Performance ***** Recording *****
"...An outstanding disc in every way."
