About this Album

This double album features the five piano sonatas composed during Beethoven’s “late period,” in which personal turmoil forced a stylistic shift towards more challenging, introspective pieces. The New York Times described Goode’s performances here as “remarkable” and “surprisingly intimate,” praising his playing both for its “organic naturalness” and “unerringly lyric sensibility.”
