The Two Last Great Sonatas For Piano

Publicado el 19 Ee noviembre Ee 2017 a las 2:00 Comments comentarios (0)




Two of the most significant piano composers of the 20th century are Igor Stravinsky and Serguei Rachmaninov. Their main differentiating factor lies in their interest pertaining to development of "The Great Sonata" with great distinctive musical signature, within a context of extreme compositional profoundness.


Determinig a choice of preference between these two sonatas, of almost 30 minutes in duration each, is a result of analizing "The Great Sonata", of searching the heirs of Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin, of trying to achieve the aim of one of the main Alberto Cobo's objectives in his career, the research and rendition of "The Great Sonata" as a piece of art for piano, in its most magnificent splendour.

The Two Last Great Sonatas For Piano


Excelente documento, actual y novedoso tanto por el contenido de dos sonatas de gran magnitud y virtuosismo como por la apreciación del artista en considerarlas como las últimas dos grandes sonatas románticas para piano. Estuve en su reciente concierto con este programa y me gustó mucho.
