Beethoven Popular Piano Sonatas



The mass appeal of certain musical compositions at the expense of others is a phenomenon that has never been satisfactorily explained, yet generations have decided that the three famous sonatas on this recording speak with a more universal voice than their fellows. All three are set in dark minor keys; all three have arresting openings; all three contain at least one tragically impassioned movement ... and none has a happy ending. Perhaps the human soul finds darkness more compelling than light!
