Overview

Beethoven: Favourite Piano Sonatas

The pianist's bible also comes in two parts: The Old Testament is Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier," and the New Testament is Beethoven's 32 sonatas. There are few pianists who can preach the power of Beethoven better than Alfred Brendel. Brendel reveals what's essential and profound about this music, whether it's the contemplative coolness of the famous opening movement of the "Moonlight" Sonata, the bucolic bliss of the "Pastoral" Sonata, or the passionate perorations of the "Appassionata" Sonata. This collection gathers together the composer's most famous sonatas to offer a representative survey that give a sense of just how much Beethoven developed this form over the years. (An excellent companion volume of the late sonatas is also available in the same "twofer" format.)
