Chopin: Complete Sonatas for Piano (3) / Joseph Moog, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Earning a GRAMMYŠ nomination and Gramophone Magazine's Young Artist of the Year award in 2015, Joseph Moog is one of the finest young virtuoso pianists of our time. On this release, Moog turns to Chopin's piano sonatas. Piano Sonata No.1 is a rarely heard work. It shows the young composer as yet untouched by the influences of Beethoven and the other great composer-pianists of the period. It owes more to Mozart and the late classical period. By the time he composed the Piano Sonata No.2, Chopin had fully absorbed the early romanticism of Hummel and Field, and developed a strong distinctive voice. The slow movement, a funeral march, is one of the most famous pieces of music ever composed. Piano Sonata No.3 is a masterpiece, one of the greatest works for piano of the 19th century, and displays the total mastery Chopin had achieved by the end of his tragically short life. This Onyx recording represents yet another outstanding achievement by Joseph Moog.
