Notes & Reviews:

Claudius Tanski, a piano magician with a fine-tuned touch, has chosen a very personal theme for his newest recital: three sonatas in C, all of them from the towering heights of the piano literature, have been brought into fascinating interrelation. This captured by MDG on a 3-D recording in original MDG 2+2+2 sound on a Super Audio CD. Mozart composed only two sonatas in minor keys, and the one in C minor is something very special. Mozart works almost every possible key in this Sonata until he returns for a syncopated finale in the original C minor. Beethoven's Piano Sonata op. 111, his last work for piano, points far into the musical future. This masterpiece is an immense challenge for all pianists and mastered by Claudius Tanski on the "Manfred Bürki" Steinway D from 1901 with sovereign skill and a flawless feel for the smallest tonal nuances. Since Franz Schubert did not finish his Sonata in C, it later came to be known as the "Reliquie." Its extant parts do complete justice to this designation and have tempted some composers and pianists to try to complete it. Claudius Tanski has taken a different route: he lets the impressive fragment speak for itself, fully conscious of the complexity of final movements in Schubert's late oeuvre.
