Project Description

Julius Röntgen

Piano Music 4

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.

Reviews

“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
