Little has been said about late 19th century recordings and their relevance to the musical scene nowadays. Sharona Joshua treats this material as a window into performance practice traditions prevalent for generations before. By doing so, she revives this extremely volatile, subtle, natural and expressive style, and introduces it back into music for audiences today.

“Sharona’s playing demonstrated that in the hands of an excellent musician the fortepiano’s qualities can enhance the work of the greatest composers.”
Musical Opinion

“A revelatory reading of Beethoven’s Grande Sonata pathétique inspired a performance flamboyant, full-toned and thrilling in its realisation.”
Harpsichord and fortepiano
