Malcolm Bilson plays Haydn, Dussek, and Cramer
BRIDGE 9263


$ 14.99

Early keyboard virtuoso Malcolm Bilson's latest recording features Dussek's revolutionary 'Farewell' Sonata, dedicated to Clementi, Haydn's great E-flat sonata, Hob. 52 21: 10, and Johann Baptist Cramer's delightful variations from The Magic Flute, all played on a replica of a 5½ octave English Pianoforte by Longman & Clementi, 1798, built by Chris Maene. London in the 1790s was a bustling industrial, cultural and musical capital. Johann Baptist Cramer, Muzio Clementi, and Jan Ladislav Dussek, all foreigners, were magnetically drawn to this city with its variegated and sophisticated musical possibilities. These are the first genuine piano virtuosos, and their brilliant pianism and compositions would become known as the London Pianoforte School.
