Ludwig van Beethoven – Sonata No. 30 in E Major, Op. 109
Ludwig van Beethoven – Sonata No. 31 in A-flat Major, Op. 110
Ludwig van Beethoven – Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111
“One of his generation’s most serious musical thinkers” (The New York Times), Jonathan Biss brings his rich insight and commanding technique to Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas.
Written, as Beethoven said, “in a single breath,” these pieces represent the apotheosis of his piano writing, showing his mastery of the variation form (in Op. 109), his expertise in the forms of the musical past (the fugue, in Op. 110), and an ability to be cutting-edge (considering Op. 111 as a whole, but especially the famous ‘boogie woogie’ moments in the second movement).
