Beethoven: The Complete Piano Sonatas; Bagatelles Op. 119, Op. 126. EMI Classics 62700.

This cycle of the complete piano sonatas of Beethoven by Stephen Kovacevich recorded between 1991 and 2002 is easily as good or better than the best cycles of the past 50 years. Bishop is a superb virtuoso, a seasoned interpreter, a profound thinker, and a mature man and he brings all these qualities to bear on the greatest cycle of piano sonatas ever composed. Kovacevich hears the depths as well as the excitement of the early sonatas and the breadth as well as the brilliance of the middle sonatas and he limns the face of the infinite in the late sonatas.

Beethoven: Complete Piano Sonatas: Kovacevich. Not so long ago, every pianist of real stature would make a pilgrimage on record through Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas. Pianists nowadays tend to pick and mix their discs - recording a bit of Schubert here, a Schumann collection there - and rarely embark on (or are allowed by their record companies to embark on) the kind of long-term commitment that a Beethoven cycle demands.

Eleven Bagatelles, Op. 119: IV. Andante cantabile, 01:15. Six Bagatelles, Op. 126: III. Andante, 02:18. Eleven Bagatelles, Op.

The Eleven Bagatelles, Op. 119 were written by Ludwig van Beethoven between the 1790s and the early 1820s. By the end of 1803, he had already sketched bagatelles Nos. 1 through 5 (along with several other short works for piano that he never published). In 1820, he composed the last five bagatelles of Op. 119, and published them as a set of five in 1821

He is in his element, responding wholeheartedly to the extreme physicality that Beethoven brought to musi. ut the wit and delicacy of the playing are also remarkable. Kovacevich himself has spoken of his love for the fun and virtuosity of the composer’s early sonatas, while in the often challenging later works he sees a subtext of radiance and some sort of inherent. 01.
