One of Britain’s most prolific recitalists, Martin Roscoe presents the much anticipated second volume from his Complete Beethoven Series of the new Barry Cooper edition.
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 thoughtful musicianship that is allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.
We are delighted to present Volume Two from his complete Beethoven piano sonata series, of which Roscoe describes these works as “ the most searching, the most challenging and the most fulfilling of all composers.”
“Martin Roscoe gives a fine account of the Waldstein, capturing all the music's flamboyance. and meticulously conveying Beethoven's controversial pedal-markings in the concluding rondo. His affectionate performances of the Op. 49 Sonatas leave nothing to be desired, either.”
“There is a warmth, directness and humanity about Roscoe's Beethoven that is very appealing, no more so than in his beautiful handling of Op 7's Largo movement, one of the highlights of the disc...A fine disc, superbly recorded at Potto Hall.”
