- Igor Levit piano
Igor Levit concludes his intense season-long Beethoven Cycle with the composer’s final piano sonatas. ‘Beethoven’s pianistic imagination is stamped on every page of these three [works]’, observes the veteran American scholar Lewis Lockwood.
Each sonata reveals fresh facets of invention, with jaw-dropping pianistic effects allied to formal structures of extraordinary ingenuity.
