    Album information

    After his debut recording of Beethoven was acclaimed by the critics, Filippo Gorini, a student of Alfred Brendel and winner of the First Prize and Audience Prize at the 2015 Beethoven Competition in Bonn, returns with two of the composer's piano sonatas.

    Here Gorini tackles the perilous Sonata no. 29, known as the ‘Hammerklavier’, which the composer himself said would pose a challenge for future generations, along with Sonata no. 32, which according to Thomas Mann represents the supreme accomplishment of, and ‘farewell’ to, sonata form.
