ArtistsKemp English (piano)
A native of Bohemia, Leopold Koželuch made his name in Vienna, a thriving musical centre dubbed ‘the land of the Clavier’ by Mozart. The sonatas in this volume all appeared in 1784, meeting the challenge of Mozart’s popularity head-on. Koželuch was singularly adept at producing what was considered the ideal fortepiano sonata of the time, his high reputation making him an influential supporter of a new instrument capable of accommodating ‘the clarity, the delicacy, the light and shade he demanded in music’.
Kemp English is one of New Zealand’s leading keyboard performers. Much in demand as a solo organist, collaborative pianist and specialist fortepiano exponent, he 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)
“His [English] sensitive playing and intelligent sleeve notes evoke variously “strong energy and drama”, “brilliant naivete” and “advanced bravura”. His light and shade and finger clarity are superb.” – New Zealand Listener (Vol.2)
“Delightful music, essayed with clarity and elegance; and there’s lots more to come.” – MusicWeb International (Vol.3)
