“It was high time someone blew the interpretative cobwebs off this still under-appreciated repertoire, and Donohoe’s clearly the person to do it.”
Peter Donohoe’s latest disc of Mozart Piano Sonatas (Vol. 1) with SOMM Recordings has been named BBC Music Magazine’s Recording of the Month for April 2019.
Julian Haylock writes:
“Donohoe appears to take early Beethoven as his interpretative trajectory with a gloves off spontaneity that imbues these magical scores with a compelling vitality and freshness.”
“Donohoe enhances its expressive candour with supreme naturalness, imbuing the major-key tempo with an enchanting sense of inevitability.”
