Through his solo recordings of Schubert’s piano music, and, with his wife and duet partner Caroline Clemmow, a ground-breaking series of duet recordings, Anthony Goldstone has become a name to be reckoned with. But he arrives at a new stature with this impressive series of Beethoven sonata recordings, featuring the Moon;ight, Pathetique and Appassionata sonatas, in which a leonine strength and pristine articulation combine to preernt intellectually and physically formidable performances of these best-known sonatas. As a coup-de-grace, Goldstone includes the first recording of Ignaz Moscheles’ transcription and arrangement of the overture to Fidelio, a fascinating version that peels back some of the layers of the original, revealing the compact, dramatic structure of one of Beethoven;’ most familiar warhorses.
