      Complete Piano Sonatas
      Michael Endres, piano

      British composer Sir Arnold Bax, (born 1883 in Streatham/London – died 1953 in Cork/Ireland) was famed outside the British Isles primarily for his mastery of orchestral color. His piano works profited particularly from this special sensitivity. On his new CD, Michael Endres interprets the four piano sonatas as well as the First Symphony in its original version for piano, – the first recording of this work. In 1921, Bax wrote a three-movement sonata, which he later orchestrated and whose slow movement he revised. He published the result as his Symphony No. 1. But the piano version is a rich and many-sided composition as well. Michael Endres says that it is “probably the most original of all Bax’s sonatas.”
