Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
According to the impresario Salomon, had George Frederick Pinto not died at the age of 21, ‘England would have had the honor of producing a second Mozart.’ Early in 1806 he probably succumbed to the effects of tuberculosis, much exacerbated by a dissolute lifestyle; Pinto’s ‘very questionable character, his habits of intemperance, and his somewhat lax principles,’ were notorious to his contemporaries. And yet despite the praise of Salomon and Samuel Wesley, who remarked that ‘a greater musical Genius has not been known’, Pinto’s music fell into obscurity, only to be revived in the 1960s. Within the two or three years before his death he produced an astonishingly mature body of work centered on the instruments with which he was also a celebrated performer, the violin and the piano. Perhaps his most remarkable music is to be found in the piano sonatas recorded here by Marek Toporowski:, more particularly the two sonatas op.3 and the Grand Sonata in C minor ‘Inscribed to his Friend John Field’ (1803).A Fantasia and Sonata in C minor, left unfinished and completed by Wesley and Wölfl; and three sets of Variations also match up to Pinto’s best standards. These works are blessed with beautiful and original ideas; although the influences of Mozart, Dussek and Cramer are clearly discernible there are many original touches, as well as astonishing anticipations of Beethoven, Schubert and even Chopin. Anyone with even a passing interest in Classical-era piano music will find Pinto’s highly inventive music worth further investigation. This new recording is the first complete survey undertaken on instruments of Pinto’s own time. Marek Toporowski plays three fortepianos, all of them modern copies of distinguished German models from the end of the 18th century. He also contributes a detailed booklet essay on Pinto’s life and works, informed by both practical and scholarly experience as one of the Polish historical performance movement’s most renowned musicians.
