Barenboim plays Beethoven: Pathétique, Moonlight, Appassionata
Pierre Boulez Saal
Performance date: 31/05/2020
Daniel Barenboim has been playing Beethoven's complete piano sonatas since he was a teenager, and he has performed – and recorded – them innumerable times. This unparalleled experience, as well as his perspective as a celebrated conductor of Beethoven's works, imbues the pianist-conductor's performances with an irresistible authority. His performances of three of the composer's best known sonatas – running the gamut from drama and passion to meditative stillness – are captured here in the intimate space of Berlin's Pierre Boulez Saal.
