ArtistsPetra Matejova (fortepiano)
Tomášek’s music oscillates between late classicist and early romantic style with songs and piano compositions making the bulk of his oeuvre. Sadly, only a little fragment of these are accessible on recordings. The present recording brings three out of his seven fortepiano sonatas (composed between 1799 and 1806); they are performed on a copy of a period instrument. Tomášek’s sonatas are marked by a profuseness of musical ideas and often also unusual modulation plans. Since her fortepiano studies in Paris, Petra Matějová has performed extensively, made a number of recordings and led master classes in several European countries. Her ambition in making this recording was to convince listeners and pianists alike that the time has come to bring Tomášek’s work to new life and give it back its well-deserved place on concert stages.
