Beethoven 2020 - The Complete Piano Sonatas
In 2020, the musical world celebrates the 250th Anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest composers of all time, Ludwig van Beethoven. Joining the musical party, the RIAM Keyboard Faculty marks the Elder Statesman’s 250th birthday by presenting the Complete Cycle of his extraordinary 32 Piano Sonatas throughout this landmark year in music.
In this instalment of the year-long musical pilgrimage, two of the composer's late sonatas—the towering Hammerklavier and the profound Op 109—will be performed by leading RIAM Pianists, Alfonso Sanchez Perez and Alexander Bernstein.
Sonata in E major, op 109 | Alfonso Sanchez Perez
