Julius Röntgen (1855-1932) was both a composer and a gifted pianist who composed more than 600 compositions. Recent renewed interest in Röntgen has revealed many treasures still waiting to be awakened in the Röntgen Archives (Den Haag, Netherlands). Alongside a huge series of unknown string quartets, string trios, piano trios and symphonies there are some thirty piano sonatas and numerous other works for piano from 1922-1932 alone. Röntgen started and ended his creative life as a piano composer.
This is the fourth CD in the series that Mark Anderson began in 2014 with Nimbus Records. It will be released world-wide in March 2019.
“Mark Anderson’s playing communicates the music so authoritatively that it is hard to imagine it presented any other way.” – Myron SIlberstein, Fanfare magazine
“It’s great that Nimbus have brought this rare and interesting repertoire into the public domain so well and given the pianist Mark Anderson the chance to record it. I hope this series will continue with some of Röntgen’s other piano works – there are many to choose from as he was an extremely prolific composer.” – Jonathan Welsh, MusicWeb International
