About the album

Pianist Angela Brownridge made her concert debut at Wigmore Hall when she was only twelve years old. Since then she has toured the world, recorded three albums prior to this one, and has performed at the BOZAR Brussels, Konzerthaus Berlin, and Concertgebouw A’dam. Brownridge has been compared to some of the legends, including Rachmaninov and Cherkasky. The New York Times called her “one of the world’s finest pianists” and a “true genius… Her performances were passionate, rhapsodic, and totally compelling. She is a marvelously exciting artist, and a wonderfully assertive pianist with a strong sense of musical structure.” For this release, Brownridge has chosen staples in the piano repertoire, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas no.’s 3, 23, and 30. Her interpretation of no. 23, “Apassionata,” has garnered her critical accolades.

It would be hard to find a better recording of these sonatas. Angela Brownridge's interpretation of op. 109 in particular is sublime and her deep affinity with the composer shines through in all three works. Unlike so many other pianists who take liberties with the dynamics, she follows the composer's markings meticulously and it is surely this which enables her to produce such exceptional performances. Beethoven knew what he was about! Altogether a great recording.
