Beethoven: The Last Six Piano Sonatas

Provocative period instrument recordings by Peter Serkin

Musical Concepts is pleased to return to general availability Peter Serkin‘s provocative, acclaimed recordings of the final six piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven played on a restored Ludwig Graf fortepiano of the same vintage as the music itself. Originally released on the pioneering American independent label Pro Arte as the LP era came to a close, these recordings represented a major deparure for an artist best known for his probing approach to twentieth-century repertoire, with the result a startlingly “new” sound for some of the most challenging landmarks of the piano repertoire.
