Notes and Editorial Reviews

Listeners of all ages will find in this recital a lively and absorbing array of pieces, arranged in much the same spirit as in Volume 1. A sequence of smaller pieces (bagatelles mostly) prepares the way for the larger, more complex, sonata movements. Among these is the opening movement of the Moonlight sonata, whose fateful and instantly recognizable triplet figure exerts it's hypnotic power throughout a quite long journey. A bonus video, What Sal Heard, presents the highly interesting case of Salvatore Pico, a small boy with gifted ears and an active imagination! "Rangell takes the listener on a kind of transcendental, spiritual journey through Beethoven's piano works. What strikes me immediately about Rangell's Performances are his easeful lyricism and his sunny, joyful interpretation." (Fanfare)
