The much anticipated release of Volume 3 marks Roscoe’s 60th birthday celebrations.
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 thoughtful 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 (Waldstein, DXL1162) describing is as “one of the truly great recordings of the Waldstein Sonata…perfect musical judgement and a formidable technique from Martin Roscoe”
“I haven't heard playing from any recent pianist that surpasses Roscoe's...It is characteristic of Roscoe, as of all the supreme executants, that listening itself becomes a strenuous process...Roscoe made me feel that [the Sonatas] are related to one another in ways that I have never reaised before. An outstanding disc in every way.”

“Roscoe senses the schematic but form always yields to musicianship Roscoe's grasp of plaintive mourning through shrouded tone in una corda and the ultimate release of new life founded in fugal inversion is indescribable. Experience the message in this marvellously wrought interpretation.”
