Modern Piano Music / Charles Rosen
Label: SONY CLASSICAL
Sony Music Entertainment is pleased to announce another ten releases in its increasingly comprehensive series of Classical Masters. These new box sets contain classic interpretations by some of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. Another remarkable American virtuoso, Charles Rosen, brought the unique insights of a brilliant musical thinker and scholar to every work he performed, but his mastery of a large eclectic repertoire was perhaps displayed to the fullest in 20th-century works. Sony Classical’s new box collects Rosen’s authoritative readings of Bartók, Boulez, Stravinsky, Schoenberg and Webern, as well as both of his recordings of Elliott Carter’s breathtaking Double Concerto for Harpsichord and Piano, which Stravinsky hailed as “a masterpiece”.
