Pierre​-​Arnaud Dablemont plays Beethoven

PAD14001 | Release date: July 1st, 2014 | , | Artist : Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont

Pianist Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont releases here an album containing three pivotal sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven – the two Op. 27 sonatas labeled “Quasi una fantasia” in E flat major and C sharp minor (including the “Moonlight” sonata) and the Op. 28 sonata in D major (“Pastoral”).

In these three sonatas we see Beethoven stretching and experimenting with both form and texture, and the Paris-born pianist Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont – known for his innovative and interpretations – brings a unique and fresh view to these vital works of the classical piano repertoire.

Reviews

*** Star Recording of the Year ***
…The Parisian born and Brussels based French pianist has a fluent technique and
produces a lovely tone, but it’s his musicality that wins…

…Add young Dablemont’s CD to my favourites list…
Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia

…this album as a whole is definitely one for the collection, giving a new insight on familiar works to anyone with an interest in Beethoven. I’m looking forward to Dablemont’s next installment of Beethoven sonatas…
Lewis Wolstanholme – August 30, 2014

…Dablemont offers a sharply delineated account … with a well-paced account of
the Pastoral Sonata to round off proceedings and excellent 24-bit recording,
there’s a great deal to be said for the Dablemont …
