Following up to her recording of piano concertos by J.N. Hummel and Beethoven, Austrian pianist Ingrid Marsoner is now presenting her interpretations of late piano sonatas by Beethoven. Marsoner's subtle yet vigorous play is opening with the Sonata No. 28 in A major, Op. 101. The Rondo alla ingharese, quasi un capriccio, Op. 129 i sbetter known by its popular name ''Rage Over a Lost Penny'' and is as an early work like the ''lighter'' Sonata No. 24 in F sharp major, Op. 78, a welcoming intermezzo and an interesting contrast to the somewhat more profound late sonatas. As such the Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111 symbolizes this world and the hereafter with its two very dissenting movements.

Now many of the world’s most serious and significant pianists (Schnabel, Serkin, Brendel, Goode, etc.) have devoted a great deal of thoughtful study to the Beethoven sonatas; in general, performance of this music represents a level of erudition and deep contemplation probably unequaled by the works of any other mainstream composer. Serious pianists study every aspect of these works in minute detail; virtually everything is taken into account except those instruments which inspired Beethoven, and which he had in mind when he composed.

"Solomon's wonderful performances of the great Op 111 … is unfortunately spoilt by poor recording." So wrote the authors of "The Record Guide" in 1951. Well, here's a chance for music lovers to hear this wonderful 1948 performance half a century later in remastered sound. I reckon it is a wonderful performance, a little fresher in approach than Solomon's 1951 remake.

The Sonata D664: an example of Schubert's fine craftsmanship despite being in the shadow of the giant, Beethoven. Only nine years later, Schubert, just 31 years old, produced what was, already, his last sonata (D960), just a few weeks before his shockingly premature death. It would take many decades for these masterpieces to gain the same consideration as the late symphonies of Mozart or Beethoven’s Op.132 but this music is now cherished by today’s artists – among them Javier Perianes, who here returns to Schubert after a remarkable first volume that enjoyed great success with the public.

The highly acclaimed series of Haydns complete piano sonatas with multi-award winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has now reached Volume 6. This set opens with the most imposing of Haydns early sonatas, No. 11, and follows it with two lesserknown ones, both from the late 1770s, that were published without the composers approval: Nos 34 and 35. Each of Nos 36 and 43, the last two featured here, opens a new group of six sonatas, and a new world in Haydns compositional style. Future volumes will continue to explore the huge variety of style and expression found in Haydns sonatas.

There are projects on which the artistic director of a record label straightaway asks himself a few questions.For example,when it comes to recording Beethoven's three greatest hit sonatas,recorded a multitude of times by the leading pianists.However,a forte-pianist of the calibre of Alexei Lubimov already constitutes one good reason to implement the project,as does the choice of the facsimile of an Erard piano(1802,copy made by Christopher Clarke)of which the original was within Beethoven's reach.
