Repertoire Note  


Goldschmidt’s piano works are relatively few in number, but those that exist are highly characteristic and demonstrate a highly personal yet idiomatic approach to the instrument.  At 18 minutes, the Sonata of 1926 is the most substantial of Goldschmidt’s piano works; it is also one of his most harmonically complex and rhythmically adventurous scores, characteristics it shares with the String Quartet No.1 op.8 and Partita for orchestra op.9 written at around the same time. It takes a player with a spirit of adventure to master the considerable technical difficulties, but will amply reward those prepared to meet the challenge, while a confident, high-energy performance provides a thrilling listen.
