Previously described by Pianist Magazine as a young artist “…who in every respect is in a class above his colleagues…”, Joseph Moog has excelled once more and received a fabulous review of his latest disc which features Tchaikovsky Grande Sonate Op 37 and Scharwenka’s Piano Sonata No 2.
This time, in their Awards Edition, Gramophone describe him as “A young artist with no fear of boldly pitting himself against the most demanding repertoire, and one whose individuality and voice are never lost among its virtuoso demands.”
Jed Distler writes that “…it takes a real virtuoso to make the gnarly, block-like piano-writing of Tchaikovsky’s underrated Grande Sonate sound pianistically idiomatic and supple…” and how Moog “…not only succeeds in doing this but also delivers one of the modern era’s best recordings of this work…”.
The Gramophone Awards edition is out now, where you can read the full review. Joseph’s recording has also been chosen for the prestigious accolade of Editor’s Choice.
Finally, equally exciting news is that almost a month today Joseph will make his London recital debut at the Wigmore Hall on October 19th, 11:30. Be sure to catch this sensational young pianist while he’s in the UK this Autumn!
