Sebastian Forster : Magnificent Obsession vol 2 - Beethoven Sonatas.
Exquisitely performed beethoven piano sonatas.
Worldwide acclaimed pianist Sebastián Forster ventured into accomplishing a
lifetime-legacy major project of immense proportions: the recording of the 32
Piano Sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven, in an ongoing creative effort during 10
albums, for 2009 and 2010.
Sebastián is a true Beethovenian, he breathes and experiences Beethoven's every
single emotion, of true love, drama, passion, desperation, beauty and darkness.
Living Beethoven with every key stroke is an experience of monumental inner
impact, only at reach for the daring soul and the truly talented soloist.
Famous for his deeply moving and highly original interpretations and dazzling
mastery of his repertoire, Sebastián starts this travel through the universe of
Beethoven in this Volume 2 with three of his first Sonatas from 1796 and 1798,
most of them dedicated to the Countess Anne Margarete von Browne: Piano Sonata
No. 4, in E-flat major, Op. 7 (sometimes nicknamed the Grand Sonata); Piano
Sonata No. 5 in C minor, Op. 10, No. 1; and Piano Sonata no. 6 in F major, Op.
10, No. 2.
A very interesting Volume 2 in which we can experience first period
compositions, anticipating more notable C minor works such as the Pathétique
Sonata and the Fifth Symphony in its nervous energy, other pieces which serve to
demonstrate the impact of silence in music, and strongly embellished ones
reminiscent of Beethoven's Bagatelles, as well as graceful pieces such as the
Rondo: Poco allegretto e grazioso in E flat major, in which Beethoven creates a
raindrop effect, with the bass acting as droplets of water touching the ground.
Hear Beethoven as you have never heard it before, getting lost in the world of
invigorating ideas and emotional virtuosity that has made Sebastián Forster one
of the outstanding interpreters of the classical repertoire currently working on
the world stage today.
