Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Piotr Anderszewski’s second release on Virgin was an all-Bach recital that was truly dazzling. Everything about the playing on that disc conveyed a deep love for the music, a firm grasp of the polyphony, smart and alert tempos, and lovely tonality. His performance of the English Suite No. 6 on this latest release is just as delectable. On repeated hearings, I am struck by Anderszewski’s keen sense for the structural relationships between the sections of the overall work...Not surprisingly, Anderszewski shines in the bristling fugues of this most Baroque of the Beethoven sonatas. Here, his playing is boldly virile, even triumphant. The finale is delivered with thrilling virtuosity, even as it conveys the always-looming tragic nature of Read more Beethoven. Similarly, Anderszewski plays the terse Webern with an intensity that seems to want to wring the truth out of the music." - Peter Burwasser, FANFARE Read less
