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. This concluding volume gathers Beethoven's monumentally challenging, wonderfully complex late sonatas.
The pinnacle of this memorable lineup—though each of these final works is an achievement in itself—is perhaps the Sonata No. 29, the Hammerklavier. Remarkable among Beethoven’s late sonatas through its extraordinary technical difficulty and epic length, the Hammerklavier is widely regarded as one the most challenging works in the repertoire, also requiring flawless musicality to cohere—a work worthy of Maestro Barenboim!
