LISZT / BERG / PROKOFIEV / BARTOK
Piano sonatas
Peter Donohoe (piano)

[ EMI Masters / CD ]

Release Date: Sunday 1 May 2011

"..this is a performance that I find myself warming to more on each successive hearing."
(Gramophone on the Prokofiev)

"Donohoe's performances of the 'War Sonatas' are the result of a long standing relationship with the music-and it shows. Donohoe favours a more broadly symphonic, more cogently unified view of the work, and frequently sheds light on a host of hidden subtleties-harmonic and rhythmic, as well as inner details...this is a performance that I find myself warming to more on each successive hearing."
(Gramophone on the Prokofiev)

"The Bartok is tremendous: exhilarating, percussively brilliant in outer movements and atmospheric in the central Sostenuto a pesante, it's also well shaped, both in the long and short term. The brilliant, immediate recording serves this performance best of all." (Gramophone on the Bartok)
