‘Scarlatti Illuminated’

Latest release from pianist Joseph Moog

This latest offering demonstrates Scarlatti as written and as seen through the re-interpretations of his music by three towering figures from the pantheon of keyboard virtuosi – Carl Tausig, Ignaz Friedmann and Walter Gieseking. Moog is one of the most exciting pianists of our time, and his virtuosity is ideal for this extraordinary music. 
Chosen as the disc of the week for February 4th by Norman Lebrecht on Sinfini Music, Joseph’s new recording is already receiving some high praise:
“…At 24 years old, Joseph Moog knows no fear. He takes the virtuosic slaloms eyes wide open and then reins back without brakes for the onset of Baroque curlicues. I have a feeling we’re going to hear much more of Moog. German-born, he has an original turn of mind and an impressive technique. The music is never less than unexpected, with an occasional wistful quirk that hints at might-have-beens. Contrary to the usual rules, this album could be a career-making release…” Norman Lebrecht
