#Beethoven250 (Piano Sonatas)

Piano Sonatas

Over the course of his thirty-two piano sonatas, Beethoven took a Classical-era form and transformed it into something boundless, timeless, and monumental. There is perhaps no better illustration of Beethoven's evolution as a composer than in these giants of the piano repertoire, from the early almost Mozartian sonatas to the towering WaldsteinAppassionataLes Adieux, and Hammerklavier. For pianists, they are quite simply the gold standard of solo piano music—each as bold and singular as the day it was written, each unmistakably the work of Beethoven.
