Igor Levit: Beethoven Sonatas

Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 30 in E major, Op 109 (18:35)
Igor Levit, piano
For the last three years, Igor Levit’s name has been the first to be mentioned whenever there has been talk of the most exciting pianists of the younger generation. He is not only mature in his interpretations, but Levit’s appetite for new repertoire of works as difficult and demanding as possible is boundless. For his debut 2-CD album on Sony Classical, the twenty-six-year-old pianist has chosen some of the most challenging repertoire ever written for the piano: Beethoven’s last five piano sonatas.
