Description

Five famous sonatas by Beethoven – all bearing a popular epithet known the world over – are presented to advanced pianists in this attractive volume of selected works from the new three-volume Urtext edition. These five pieces do not all number among the most difficult sonatas from Beethoven's cosmos but do indeed demand an advanced keyboard technique. They reveal to every Beethoven enthusiast the multifarious spectrum of these impassioned compositions from his quill. This collection also features all the benefits of the editions stemming from the collaboration between Perahia and Gertsch: from extensive information on the genesis, publication, and source situation, to the first-rate fingerings by Maestro Perahia.
