Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas

news & reviews

  • about this album

    Richard Goode's Grammy-nominated, 10-disc set of the complete Beethoven sonatas was the first by an American-born musician. "His accounts of the piano sonatas in concert and on disc," says The Guardian, "are performances to which one can return without fear of finding them stale. They lack mannerisms and any sense of a performing ego trying to insinuate itself between the music and listener—the same selfless gift that his teacher Rudolf Serkin exemplified.”
