This German pianist is barely thirty years of age. Yet by 2015 he was voted Gramophone's Young Artist of the Year and his Grieg-Moszkowski CD with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern won him a Grammy nomination just a year later. “Joseph Moog's fingers play faster than his shadow. His technique allows him to mould his instrument to his hand, through which he finds the perfect combination of spontaneity, intellect, imagination and musical rigour.” (Diapason, September 2015). Is there any need to heap on more praise?
