Beethoven: Sparks of Joy

Beethoven: Sparks of Joy

One of Beethoven’s “hidden” treasures is found in, Op. 54.

Beethoven’s 22nd piano sonata, Opus 54, is like a buried treasure, appearing between the more famous Waldstein (Op. 53) and Appassionata (Op. 57). Its formidable technical and interpretive challenges also discourage many players from making the attempt. Here is an excellent performance by the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.
