This could be an epithet for Reubke - the prodigious student of Liszt, or for the performer of these two astonishing works. The depth of understanding and sensitivity of Anthony Hewitt is matched by a technique which enables him to create a spellbinding and sometimes breathtakingly exciting performance.
The intensity of thought in no way "clogs" the music, but frees it so that relationships are fully explored and deeply expressed. I did not know the Reubke at all, but simply could not stop playing it. A great CD fom a mature and truly gifted pianist

"The English pianist Anthony Hewitt (b1971) is the winner of several competitions (though not, as the booklet claims, the William Kapell International Piano Competition – he was awarded joint second place in 1992 when no first prize was given). He is a remarkably gifted artist and though recordings of the Liszt Sonata are not exactly thin on the ground (roughly 70 are currently available) this account can hold its own with some of the finest. It is a pleasure to hear the left-hand figurations, such an important feature of the work, given due but not overwhelming prominence, allied to a superb leggiero touch and a beautifully even, silken sound.

Recordings of the Reubke Sonata by comparison are sadly few (six in the catalogue, not counting Hamish Milne’s pioneering 1977 recording on L’Oiseau-Lyre – nla). Hewitt’s trump card is that his is, surprisingly, the first recording to couple the Reubke and the Liszt. The two have obvious parallels, not least the acutely dotted principal theme of both, the three-in-one movement structure, their daring exploration of tonality and the final major-key resolution of both. Hewitt is no less persuasive and fluent here, though Claudius Tanski (MDG) brings greater weight and musical imagination to bear throughout – the Wagner-like maestoso – andante sostenuto section at 12’04” for instance, the handling of the quirky 6/8 allegro agitato rhythm at 25’46” and the presto octaves at 26’51”. Not that you will be able to find these of any individual sections tracked here or in the Liszt, the one black mark against this welcome issue."

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Great Sonatas - Teacher and Student - 8 Jun. 2016
By Dennis E. Ferrara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Anthony Hewett has issued a most interesting recital of two massive piano sonatas of the middle 19th century of teacher Franz Liszt - (1811-1886) and student Jullius Reubke - (1834-1858). Liszt was THE piano as performer, composer, writer, reviewer and teacher. His compositions covered everything from solos, duets, chamber music, symphonic, oratorio, lieder, and even opera; however, Reubke died and left only one piano sonata, a few piano compositions and one major organ sonata and two short organ works. Yet, his name still is remembered by this very short list of compositions. His sonata certainly matches Liszt in quality and length and breath of composition.
The Program - Protege - Anthony Hewitt - Divine Art - TT: 60:10 - Franz LIszt - (1811-1886) - Sonata in B minor - (S178/R21) - i. Lento assai-Allegro energico-Grandioso-Recitative-Andante sostenuto-Quasi Adagio-Allegro-Piu mosso-Stretta quasi Presto-Presto-Prestissimo-Andante sostenuto-Allegro moderato-Lento assai; Julius Reubke - (1834-1858) - Sonata in B-flat minor - i. Allegro maestoso-Allegro appassionato-Tempo primo-Allegro con fuoco-Maestoso; ii. Andante sostenuto-Piu lento-Adagio; iii. Allegro assai-Allegro agitato-Meno moss-Grave-Tempo primo-Presto-Allegro maestoso.
In this superb rceording, one finds an excellent example of pianist as tonal virtuoso as well as a musician who totally understands beautiful tone for its own sake especially throughout the Liszt sonata. Many pianists tend to "pound" their ways through this massive sonata and the results are uneven and unbeautiful to say the least; however, here, the subtle, nuance, art of the musical phrase as well as the flair for the dramatic are equal in these performances. More and more pianists are recording the Reubke piano sonata and it is finally receiving its just do in the world piano repertoire. It is interesting to listen to both of these sonatas together. Both are in the same key signature and both utilize trinary form and both expressive the grandness of 19th century virtuoso repertoire.
Excellent program notes are here and this is an excellent recording. Highly recommended.
