Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 1-32 (Complete)

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 1-32 (Complete)

Salzburg Festival 2014, Mozarteum


Beethoven’s opus of 32 piano sonatas, known as “the New Testament of piano music”, is a landmark in piano literature. Spanning Beethoven’s entire life, the sonatas reflect his whole development as a human being and a musician, moving from one century into the next, from one epoch in music in to another. With the sonatas “Pathétique”, “Moonlight”, “Waldstein”, “Appassionata”, “Hammerklavier” and the final sonata op. 111, the cycle contains some of the most known piano pieces of all time. Now, for the first time in its history the complete cycle was performed at the Salzburg Festival. For this challenge the Festival asked no less than the world-renowned and influential Beethoven expert and pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. With more than 45 performances of Beethoven’s complete sonata cycle in concert halls all over the world and his relentless drive to discover new details and facets in the sonatas through meticulous study of the scores, “Buchbinder has set new standards in the interpretation of Beethoven’s works” (Bayerischer Rundfunk).

We are delighted to announce the release of the much anticipated Volume 6 ‘Moonlight’ from Martin Roscoe’s complete Beethoven Sonata series.

Composed by a young Beethoven at the age of twelve, these early piano masterpieces perfectly illustrate the daringness and originality of the young composer.

Piano Sonata in C sharp minor, ‘Moonlight’ is the most famous work of Beethoven’s piano works. Martin Roscoe notes how ground-breaking it is with the composer’s choice of key – C sharp minor was hardly ever used by composers, and secondly the opening with an Adagio slow triplet movement to produce a hypnotic calm while the funereal dotted rhythm of the main theme evokes the feeling of tragedy. Producer Mike George adds that the F minor sonata is probably the most interesting and forward-thinking of Beethoven’s early sonatas, also featured in this collection.

“[Roscoe favours] clear textures, astute voice-leading, balance and symmetry, discreet use of the pedal and a kind of Classical reserve that contrast with more combative, confrontational interpretations…listeners whose internal Beethoven sonata barometers read ‘intimate’ rather than ‘cosmic’ will respond to the stature and high standards of Roscoe’s artistry” Gramophone Magazine, May 2017

Paavali Jumppanen (piano)

This double-CD release is a third volume in pianist Paavali Jumppanen’s ongoing recording cycle of the Beethoven piano sonatas.

This release includes Piano Sonatas Nos. 9–15, 19 & 20 – all written between 1798 and 1805, among them perhaps Beethoven’s most famous Piano Sonata, the “Moonlight” Sonata.

“I found [this] an enormous nourishment of the spirit. Jumppanen is fully aware of [the sonatas's] innovative qualities, but plays them on a Steinway of the warmest tone, with relaxed concentration. The results are such that, once you hear one, it's hard not to listen to all seven of these works…this set has so many virtues” BBC Music Magazine, March 2016 *****
