Album Description

Ian Watson and Susanna Ogata’s acclaimed series on CORO Connections continues with the third disc in their exploration of Beethoven’s Sonatas for Fortepiano and Violin. Written at a time when the composer was struggling to accept his growing deafness, the three Sonatas on this volume were published together in 1803 as his Opus 30 and provide a remarkable trilogy - a collection of incredible variety and sophistication. The wide compositional range of this set demonstrates Beethoven’s prowess in creating bucolic, even humorous moments, contrasted with deep intensity, pathos and the truly sublime.

Reviews
