Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The three most popular piano sonatas of Beethoven are performed by pianist Barbara Nissman on this first volume of her continuing series, Visions: Sonatas of Beethoven. She energetically begins with the repeated rhythms of the 'Waldstein,' followed by the well-known 'Moonlight' Sonata (Incidentally, Beethoven hated that nickname because he felt it was untrue to it's last two movements- obviously the critic who penned it hadn't listened to the whole composition!!) concluding with the 'Appassionata'( Beethoven approved of that nickname because all of it's three movements are indeed passionate!) The Rondo, 'Rage over a lost penny' a funny piece of slapstick serves as an encore to this Beethoven sonata program. These sonatas are familiar and popular but Nissman gives us very personal interpretations of these old 'warhorses.' A wonderful introduction to the great piano sonatas of Beethoven! "All of Nissman's virtues come into play here - concern for the narrative architecture of an entire movement, plasticity of phrase, the appearance of spontaneity, the feeling that you're moving along with great and inevitable power.' 'Above all, Nissman gives you an emotional maturity."
