One of the undisputed masters of Beethoven’s piano repertoire, Daniel Barenboim celebrates the great composer's 250th birthday with a recital for the ages at Berlin’s Pierre Boulez Saal. Discover—or rediscover, in the hands of the maestro—the complete set of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, perhaps the most towering achievement in the history of piano music, with this volume unveiling Beethoven’s “Heroic” period.
The program notably includes the beloved Moonlight Sonata No. 14, as well as the Tempest, No. 17, which differ from their predecessors both in their harmonic progression and overall structure. True delights to the ears of music lovers, these two masterworks are deeply imbued with the full gamut of human emotion, the shifts between turmoil and serenity navigated with brio and sensitivity by maestro Barenboim.
