TODAY ON NOB:
"Jazz" Sonata for two pianos
Anthony Goldstone & Caroline Clemmow
Moyzes (1906 - 1984) was a Slovak composer who, while broadly neoromantic in bent, displayed an astonishingly diverse but sincere eclecticism in his writing. He taught and edited music in Bratislava for decades and is considered one of the most important Slovak composers of his generation.
I would like to say a big thank you to Curtis LINDSAY (composer, pianist), because from now, he is our new member in staff and also he is the Head of the Music Section. Good luck and welcome, Mr. Lindsay!
Thanks for the warm welcome—happy to be doing a little trans-Atlantic curating of 20th c. music. Please check out this wonderful piece by the relatively little-known Alexander Moyzes. I’d love to perform this one someday.
