Notes and Editorial Reviews

“It seems to me that Beethoven's mainstream piano works and those we would label "outliers" have tended to become segregated, both in recital and recording. This collection hopes to say a few new things, first in the playing, of course, but also in the integrated presentation of these pieces. Each flower making its distinctive contribution to the present bouquet.” (Andrew Rangell) American pianist Andrew Rangell was born in Chicago but raised in Colorado. He studied in New York’s Julliard School of Music, obtaining a doctorate in piano. His teachers there included David Burge, Josef Raieff, and Beveridge Webster. He won the Malraux Award of the Concert Artists Guild, leading to his New York debut. In 1988 he received the Avery Read more Fisher Career Development Grant, an award that is given on the basis of the quality of the recipient’s performances in regular concerts and recitals over a period of time, rather than as a result of a short period of competition appearances. He is best known for his performances of all thirty-two of L.V. Beethoven’s piano sonatas, and for J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations. In concert, his repertoire ranges from Gibbons and Froberger to 20th century composers such as Nielsen, Luciano Berio, Arnold Schoenberg, Janacek, and Christian Wolff. Read less
