MEDTNER, N.: Piano Sonatas (Complete), Vol. 2 (P. Stewart)

Nikolay Medtner’s 14 piano sonatas are considered among the most significant achievement in this genre by any composer since Beethoven. After the success of his First Piano Sonata (GP617) he turned to Goethe for inspiration, and the life and love-affirming Sonata-Triad Op. 11 translates the poet’s words of passion, suffering and redemption into sound. The capricious, mysterious and beautiful Sonata-Skazka is a masterpiece in miniature and was once Medtner’s most performed work. Dating from his years of exile, the Sonata- Idyll, Medtner’s fourteenth and final Sonata, is notable for its eloquent themes that linger long in the memory.
