ArtistsBart van Oort (fortepiano)
The instrument used on this album is a 1798 fortepiano from the firm of Longman‐Clementi. It dates from a decade after the Op.10 sonatas and only a few years after Op.31 no.2 from 1795. Accordingly the touch and sound corresponds more closely than any other piano previously used on recordings of this repertoire. Dussek lived in London during the 1790s, and worked closely with the manufacturer John Broadwood to extend the range of keyboard instruments. The English fortepiano lent itself naturally to the harmonic fullness of Dussek's preferred textures, and in reverse, the instrument's characteristic sound and touch inspired and shaped the development of Dussek's compositional style.
Even more important than the instrument is the musician, naturally, and in Bart van Oort these sonatas find an interpreter with years of experience in performing music of this time and place. His complete survey of Mozart’s keyboard music (94198) was praised in Gramophone for ‘attractive intimacy’ and ‘sensitive, singing accounts’; his survey of early‐Romantic nocturnes (92202) is distinguished by ‘strong, authoritative artistry’.
