"Despite her versatility, she goes straight to the heart of every composer she tackles. Here there is colour and agility aplenty, but gravitas too." (Gramophone)
"By a hefty margin, Gramophone readers voted Angela Hewitt their Artist of the Year in last month's Awards. Her new Beethoven disc demonstrates yet again why this pianist is so widely admired. Despite her versatility, she goes straight to the heart of every composer she tackles. Here there is colour and agility aplenty, but gravitas too." (Gramophone)
Angela Hewitt's legion of fans will be delighted at this eagerly awaited third volume of Beethoven sonatas. Her first two releases in this series were praised for their 'clarity, intelligence and elegance' … 'fusing poetry and passion', and all these trademark qualities of her playing are fully present in this third disc.
Four contrasting sonatas are presented here, including Op 27 No 2 'Moonlight', which needs no introduction.
Piano Sonata No. 12 in A flat major, Op. 26 'March Funebre'
Piano Sonata No. 6 in F major, Op. 10 No. 2
Piano Sonata No. 27 in E minor, Op. 90
Piano Sonata No. 14 in C sharp minor, Op. 27 No. 2 'Moonlight'
