To help place the Portuguese composer Joao Domingos Bomtempo in time, consider the following: he was born in Lisbon sixteen years after the great earthquake; his life overlapped the Napoleonic incursion into Portugal and the absence of the Portuguese royal family in Brazil; he dwelt for a time in London, returning to Lisbon from time to time during The eleven piano sonatas date from his stays in London and Paris.
They have been published by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in facsimile edition We are told in Luisa Tender's thoughtful four page note that Op. The sonatas that have been included vary between two and four movements but most are in three.
They are in an early Beethovenian style: ebullient, grandly turned and stepping out with dignity. The Op. The finale is a tongue-twister of a Vivace and vivacity is certainly part of the make-up on show. A glittering and glistening Rondo ends Op. The little Op. CD 2, at upwards of 79 minutes, has more than 11 minutes more music than CD 1. The six sonatas here are all in three purposeful movements apart from Op.
There is a shadow of the funereal about it.
This mood is offset by a finale that lays plausible claim to a Presto Assai. The same goes for its Rondo. The Allegro Risoluto of Op. The playful Allegro Scherzando of Op.
We finish with Op. This work rather stands out in the company of Bomtempo's other works. Beethoven and Mozart are mentioned in the liner-note and they seem fitting models or comparators. The first of these three movements stands out for its inventive twists and turns.

Two poetic miniatures complete this generously filled program. His intelligent playing does justice to the early works, but seems a bit unripe and shy for the mature masterpieces. The pianissimos always carry the same faded shade, while the fortes acquire an unpleasant stiffness and brutality echoed in places Choral by a saturated metallic resonance.

Known for his boundary-less musical explorations, Horvath is an enthusiastic promoter of contemporary music. He has commissioned numerous works and collaborated with leading contemporary composers from around the world including Philip Glass.
The Composer s Carl Czerny owed much to his father, who trained him as a pianist and musician, concentrating particularly on the works of Bach, Mozart and Clementi. Attempts to embark on an early career as an infant prodigy, a travelling virtuoso, were eventually abandoned, partly owing to the disturbed political and social events of the time and partly because, as Czerny later pointed out, of his lack of brilliance and showmanship, the element of charlatanry that seemed a necessary concomitant of such a career.

Naxos Jazz Legends.Like her composer father, Kapralova was drawn to piano as her natural instrument, and piano compositions are well represented in her relatively large creative output that includes about fifty compositions.
Piano also played a crucial role in her music as a compositional tool with which she experimented in both smaller and larger forms.
The first composition to appear on the disc is the remarkable two-movement Sonata Appassionata, op. The first movement in traditional sonata form radiates passionate intensity; the second movement is a theme and set of lyrical variations which gradually obscure the melodic and harmonic connections to the theme.
Kapralova was only sixteen and seventeen when she composed the pieces but their emotional maturity and pianistic demands set them apart from her earlier juvenilia. Kapralova coined the title Piano Suite for the first four of them and valued them enough to orchestrate them three years later under the title Suite en miniature, op.
The fifth composition, with tempo indication Alla marcia funebre, later became her Funeral March, op. Kapralova subjected the theme to six variations as in the second movement of her sonata; here, however, the theme, based on a repetitive melodic pattern of the peal of bells from a Parisian church, is extremely brief and simple.
