Walewein Witten (fortepiano)

Berlin-based Dutch keyboardist Walewein Witten makes his Resonus Classics debut with this programme of piano sonatas from the golden period of the fortepiano in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century.

The last of Joseph Haydn’s piano sonatas, is combined with a late period F major sonata by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Op. 31 Sonata, ‘The Tempest’.

Using a copy of an 1805 Walter fortepiano, Witten brings new energy to these outstanding works from the late-classical era.
