Mozart’s esteemed contemporary and rival, Leopold Koželuch, was an early champion of the fortepiano. His keyboard sonatas are a treasure trove of late 18th-century Viennese style, representing perfection of form and foreshadowing Beethoven and Schubert.

Kemp English, one of New Zealand’s leading artists, performs on copies of 1795 fortepianos and original instruments from the 18th and early 19th centuries, bringing the entire cycle of Koželuch’s 50 keyboard sonatas to life for the first time in a recorded format.

Much in demand as a solo organist, collaborative pianist and specialist fortepiano exponent, Kemp English displays an easy versatility across a diverse range of styles and periods. His solo CDs showcase him both as a fortepianist and concert organist, while the discs he has recorded with violin duo partner Robin Wilson explore repertoire that ranges from easy-listening to mainstream classical.

The music is dramatic and engaging…this is interesting and satisfying music - both charming and penetrating.” – American Record Guide (Vol.1)
