Description

The remarkable stamp of originality that Beethoven brought to classical forms is nowhere more evident than in his piano sonatas, which traverse his creative life.  Beethoven transformed the musical sonata form, originally intended for the amateur keyboardist’s home enjoyment, into virtuosic works that challenged and expanded the piano’s capacity for expression. Here, celebrated pianist Garrick Ohlssohn tackles four of Beethoven’s most beloved masterpieces, bringing to life the passionate and dramatic spirit of these revolutionary works, which continue to amaze and surprise us.
