Living legend of the piano Murray Perahia records two benchmark sonatas by Beethoven for the first time in his career.

Long renowned for his performances of this composer, Perahia's brand new recording pairs together two of the most radically ground-breaking of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas, in a release that is sure to be a crown jewel of the Beethoven discography.

Murray Perahia stands in the tradition of the great keyboard virtuosi as an artist armed with consummate technical skills, boundless imagination and near-mystical eloquence.

Murray Perahia explored the “Hammerklavier” Sonata first when he was in his mid-twenties. While the work's enormous technical and physical challenges fell within his grasp, its profound musical demands eluded him. He quietly dropped the “Hammerklavier” from his repertoire, recognising that he would need time to fathom its cosmic depths. Over four decades passed before he felt ready to programme the piece in recital.

After years of studying the original manuscripts, working sketches and editions published during the composer's lifetime, and having edited the new Henle Urtext edition of The Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Perahia now presents two of Beethoven's most famous sonatas as a revelation.

“The challenge of this music is still alive because one can get deeper and deeper into the piece's mysteries. That's endless - both musicologically and emotionally. Everything in it is connected. There isn't a random note, yet it feels improvisatory. So it's a mystery that will intrigue and occupy musicians forever.” - Murray Perahia

Conductor Laurence Equilbey is fascinated and inspired by the unconventional, hybrid character of Beethoven's Choral Fantasy and Triple Concerto. She sees it as “the root of their originality, which gives them a special place in Beethoven's output and in the history of music as a whole.” Their fusion of genres is reflected in performances that unite the period instruments of Equilbey's Insula orchestra and soloists - pianists Bertrand Chamayou and David Kadouch, violinist Alexandra Conunova and cellist Natalie Clein - who are best known for playing modern instruments.

“The Viennese oracle on the core literature of Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms,” is how The Philadelphia Inquirer has described the pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. It would be hard to find someone better qualified to record both Beethoven's 33 Diabelli Variations - a towering landmark of the piano repertoire - and the briefer variations composed by some 50 of Beethoven's contemporaries at the invitation of Anton Diabelli, an enterprising Viennese publisher. The theme was a waltz written by Diabelli himself. Among the composers who took up the challenge were Franz Schubert, Franz Liszt, Carl Czerny, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Ignaz Moscheles, Václav Tomášek and Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart.

Tema by Anton Diabelli & 52 Variations by Ignaz Aßmayer, Carl Maria von Bocklet, Leopold Czapek, Carl Czerny, Joseph Czerny, Johann Baptist Gänsbacher, Josef Gelinek, Anton Halm, Joachim Hoffmann, Johann Horzalka, Joseph Huglmann, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Anselm Hüttenbrenner, Friedrich Kalkbrenner, Friedrich August Kanne, Joseph Kerzkowsky, Conradin Kreutzer, Heinrich Eduard Josef Baron von Lannoy, Marcus Leidesdorf, Franz Liszt, Joseph Mayseder, Ignaz Moscheles, Ignaz Franz Baron von Mosel, Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart, Joseph Panny, Hieronymus Payer, Johann Peter Pixis, Václav Plachy, Gottfried Rieger, Philipp Jakob Riotte, Franz de Paula Roser, Johann Baptist Schenk, Franz Schoberlechner, Franz Schubert, Simon Sechter, Archduke Rudolph of Austria, Abbé Maximilian Stadler, Joseph von Szalay, Václav Jan Křtitel Tomášek, Michael Umlauf, Friedrich Dionys Weber, Franz Weber, Charles Angelus de Winkhler, Franz Weiss, Jan August Vitásek, Jan Václav Voříšek

Jonas Kaufmann (Florestan), Camilla Nylund (Leonore), Alfred Muff (Don Pizarro) & László Polgár (Rocco)
Orchestra and Chorus of The Zurich Opera House, Nikolaus Harnoncourt

Beethoven's only opera Fidelio never ceases to fascinate audiences with its spellbinding story of true love. Staged by renowned opera director Jürgen Flimm this production is the outstanding result of the teamwork of the orchestra and chorus of the Zurich Opera House with a cast of magnifi cent singer-actors. Finnish soprano Camilla Nylund in the title role presents a wonderful portrayal of the opposing characters of the loving wife, Leonore, and her alter ego, the young man Fidelio. The internationally renowned tenor Jonas Kaufmann is her counterpart Florestan - the attractive singer plays a convincing suffering prisoner, brought back to life by marital love. László Polgár is the jailer Rocco, torn between greed and sympathy and Alfred Muff takes on the sinister Don Pizarro to complete the setting.

Under the musical direction of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, this production became a highly memorable event. The Austrian conductor is universally celebrated for the structural transparency of his interpretations, his intellectual penetration and his emotional understanding of both music and opera plot. He once called this opera “a hymn of praise to marital love”. Although the work has a long tradition of being interpreted in political terms portraying oppression and liberation, imprisonment and freedom, Harnoncourt is adamant that, for Beethoven, these topics were only a means to an end: “What he was concerned about is love. The real action is between Leonore and Florestan. Essentially, the work is about what can be achieved by true love and the fact that a loving wife is ready to do anything for her husband.”

Grigory Sokolov has gained an almost mythical status amongst music-lovers and pianophiles throughout the world. He is considered by many today to be the world's greatest living pianist. Ever since his first recital in Leningrad. He has amazed everyone again and again with the enormous breadth of his repertoire and his huge, almost physical musical strength. Grigory Sokolov was largely unknown in the West, however, until the late 1980's, but is now rightfully regarded as a giant of the piano. Sokolov's concerts are anticipated with eagerness where ever he travels. He's not been outside of Europe for several years now, preferring to tour Europe. His programmes change twice a year, Sokolov mining the music he plays for every jewel before he feels ready to consider a new work. Sokolov prefers his CD's to be recorded live is not surprising, since he likes to capture the sacred moments of a real, live concert and avoid the sterile atmosphere of a studio. Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-flat major, Op. 106 (known as the Große Sonate für das Hammerklavier, or more simply as the Hammerklavier) is a piano sonata widely viewed as one of the most important works of the composer's third period and among the greatest piano sonatas. Completed in 1818, it is often considered to be Beethoven's most technically challenging piano composition and one of the most demanding solo works in the classical piano repertoire.

Igor Levit has recently given highly acclaimed debuts in major musical centres across Europe and is being hailed by international critics as one of the most outstanding pianists of our time. Levit is a BBC Young Generation Artist and currently features in the “ECHO Rising Star” program of the European Concert House Organization. Not just another young aspiring pianist releasing his debut album, he is an outstanding artist who meets the exceptionally high technical and interpretative demands of this extraordinary repertoire. Despite his young age, Levit's interpretations display a rare depth and maturity, making for extremely well-balanced renderings on an artistic level of the great piano masters of our age. The Russian-German pianist performs one of the largest chunks of piano repertoire - Beethoven much-revered five late sonatas opp. 101, 106 and 109-111. Here, Beethoven's late piano sonatas can be discovered in a most natural & tonally beautiful way. Written between 1816 - 1822 when the composer was completely deaf, Beethoven's last sonatas are highly subjective artistic and personal confessions. The sonatas constitute one of the cornerstones of Beethoven's mysterious late style next to the five last quartets.

Concentus Musicus Wien & Arnold Schoenberg Chor, Nikolaus Harnoncourt

When Nikolaus Harnoncourt retired from the stage in December last year, it was his express wish to release the broadcast recording of his last project, Beethoven's monumental “Missa solemnis” as his personal legacy.

The 'Missa solemnis' concerts at the Styriarte Festival Graz and the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were his last public performances. This recording of Beethoven's late masterpiece was made from material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals.

As a result of his life-long research on Beethoven, he conducted the work for the first time with the Concentus Musicus Wien on period instruments, the Concentus is joined by the Vienna based Arnold Schoenberg Choir and a handpicked solo quartet.
