Acclaimed Russian-German virtuoso Igor Levit continues the global celebration of Beethoven250 in an electrifying recital featuring four of the composer's 32 piano sonatas. Opening this epic program are the Sonatas Nos. 9-11 from Beethoven's "early-middle period." Discover the works that introduced the composer's volatile and vibrant Sturm und Drang (literally "storm and stress") quality, as he freely expressed extremes of emotion. Then Beethoven's mighty Hammerklavier—music that shifts earthly and spiritual planes, bringing players and listeners alike to the depths of the human psyche and back.
