Notes and Editorial Reviews

Some contemporaries in Vienna judged the Bohemian Leopold Koželuch an even finer composer than Mozart. He was especially esteemed for his mastery of the keyboard sonata, couched in the "high-classic" style, which are amongst the most important of their time. In this volume, the early Sonata No. 37, full of beautiful simplicity, is contrasted with the Sturm und Drang vehemence of Sonata No. 36. Expansive slow movements in Sonatas No. 34 and 35 reveal endless cantabile beauties. Kemp English is one of New Zealand's leading concert performers. Much in demand as a solo organist, collaborative pianist, and specialist fortepiano exponent, he relishes the opportunity to work in a diverse array of styles and periods. He enjoyed a Read more distinguished studentship at the Royal Academy of Music in London and later completed a Master of Arts degree in Music Performance at the University of York. In 2001 he was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music - an honor recognizing former students of the Academy who have achieved distinction in the profession. Read less
