To experience Beethoven’s piano Sonatas is to understand his far-reaching impacts on music, culture, and the modern musical mind.
András Schiff continues his two-year cycle from last year with the second half of Beethoven’s profoundly innovative output. Schiff’s recordings of all of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas are considered among the finest on disc.
