Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 8, 14 & 21
Peerless performances – both, deeply moving and fleet of finger – of three of Beethoven’s most popular piano sonatas. Radu Lupu, the ultimate poet among pianists, is a musician’s musician. His concerts are attended by capacity audiences who never cease to be amazed by the magic of his interpretations and his all-too-few recordings are gems. It is hard to imagine more imaginative performances of these works.
