Format: Audio CD
Fabio Martino is a young (b. 1988) pianist whose first recording this is. He studied in his native Brazil and then in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe. He has been a prizewinner in several international piano competitions and has begun a career based primarily in Germany. This CD was one of the prizes for winning a 2011 German competiton -- Ton und Erklarung - Werkvermittlung in Musik und Wert (Sound and Explanation - Conveying Works in Music and Word) -- and another was the commission of a new work by German composer York Höller which we hear on this disc.

The first work on the disc is Brahms's First Piano Sonata in C Major, Op. 1, which is not nearly as often heard as his two higher-numbered sonatas. It is actually his second sonata though, the first being the F Sharp Minor sonata which Brahms withheld until after this one was published. Ironically it is the F Sharp Minor sonata that is more often played in recitals and on disc. The first movement is a fairly conventional ('correct') sonata allegro. It may be presumed that Brahms was trying to impress Schumann (who WAS impressed) and Liszt (with whom he wanted, unsuccessfully, to study). The second movement is a theme-and-variations based on an old German folksong, 'Verstohlen geht der Mond auf' ('Stealthily the moon rises'). The third movement is a scherzo with trio and the finale is a rondo, each of whose returns of the main theme is altered, sometimes drastically. This is a dramatic, even heroic, work and Martino plays it with both boldness and grace.

Next comes 'Estudos intervalares' ('Intervallic studies') by the Brazilian composer Edino Krueger (b. 1928). This set of three etudes lasts a mere six minutes and consists of studies based on seconds, thirds and fourths.
