LUDWIG van BEETHOVEN
Beethoven: Piano Sonatas - Vol 11 (Sonatas Opp 106 & 111)
Angela Hewitt (piano)

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 4 February 2022

Both the sonatas recorded here are recent additions to Angela Hewitt's repertoire, and the results amply justify the patience and wisdom of her approach. A fitting end to a magnificent Beethoven sonata cycle.

"Her playing has great energy and also plenty of light and shade....This is an outstanding disc." Musicweb recommended June 2022

"The hallmarks of Hewitt's artistry are in evidence: fingerwork of nimble grace and steely strength; clarity of line; understated pedalling. These are considered readings that bring out the detail of Beethoven's writing, captured in clear sound by Hyperion." BBC Music

"Now that Angela Hewitt has concluded her Beethoven sonata cycle with two of its 'biggest guns', it appears that she has also saved her best for last, interpretatively speaking." Gramophone
