Following the success of the volumes 1-4, we are delighted to present Volume 5 ‘In The Beginning…’ from Martin Roscoe’s complete Beethoven Sonata series which presents four of the composer’s earliest sonatas.

‘Piano Sonata in E flat Wo0 47’, was composed when Beethoven was just 12 years old and the three Op.2 Sonatas were written between 1793 and 1795, when the 25 year old Beethoven was firmly established in Vienna, having studied with Haydn to whom these sonatas are dedicated.

The A major sonata is particularly challenging for pianists worldwide, especially those attempting Beethoven’s own fingering in one notable passage, but these Op.2 works perfectly exemplify the diversity, originality and daringness of the young Beethoven. Who would have been able to predict where the journey would take him from these auspicious beginnings?

Martin Roscoe is a versatile musician and one of Britain's most prolific recitalists who features regularly on BBC Radio 3. His enduring popularity and solid reputation are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship that is allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.

Martin is currently a Professor of Piano at the Guildhall School of Music, London, and Artistic Director of Ribble Valley International Piano Week and Beverley Chamber Music Festival.
