Notes and Editorial Reviews

Polish composer Franz Xaver Scharwenka was one of the most important and popular composer-pianists of the late 19th century, touring to the USA a total of 26 times. His four piano concertos were once cornerstones of the concerto repertoire. Sheet music for his 'Polish Dance' Op 3/1 sold into the millions, and the 1st Piano Concerto was admired by Liszt and Tchaikovsky, whose G major sonata is paired with Scharwenka’s 2nd sonata on Joseph Moog’s third CD for ONYX Classics. Scharwenka’s almost total neglect is unjustified: his concertos and sonatas definitely merit reappraisal.

Joseph Moog is fast becoming recognised as one of the most gifted and enquiring of the younger generation of pianists. His flawless technique and wide
