Audiophile Audition review

Andrew Rangell's recording of Schubert's late B-flat Sonata presents a performance of uncommon poetry and depth. One of the most searching pianists before the public today, Rangell's interpretations are noteworthy for their originality and great attention to detail. In the notes that accompany this release, Rangell writes: "Glory be to God for dappled things" begins Gerard Manley Hopkins' poem "Pied Beauty", continuing a few lines later, "for all things counter, original, spare, strange; whatever is fickle freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim..." Schubert's music, more than any other, calls to my mind this poem, this poet. How often in Schubert one feels an ineffable sensation of hovering: between sorrow and consolation, danger and safety, volition and surrender, waking and dreaming, smiles and tears." Born in Chicago and raised in Colorado, Andrew Rangell is a graduate of the Juilliard School, where he earned a doctoral degree in piano under Beveridge Webster. Writing about a recent Rangell performance, Charles Michener of the New York Observer stated: "For me, the great discovery of the series has been Andrew Rangell . . . Mr. Rangell is an individualist. And such was his intensity-like the late Glenn Gould, he seemed to be propelled by an irresistible force-that the listener's attention was riveted to the music."
