With this fourth volume - a collection in which Dohnányi pays homage to the styles and traditions of his great composer-pianist predecessors - Martin Roscoe brings his complete survey to a dazzling conclusion.
This fourth and final volume in Martin’ Roscoe’s survey of the complete piano music is a reminder of Dohnányi’s own value…These warm performances of the Suite in the Olden Style and the Six Pieces Op. 41 capture Dohnányi’s humanity, but the highlight is surely Roscoe’s towering account of the early (1899) Passacaglia in E flat minor, evoking the music’s magnificent line going back through Brahms to Bach.
