Notes and Editorial Reviews

Grammy-winning pianist Murray Perahia stands in the tradition of the great keyboard virtuosi as an artist armed with consummate technical skills and boundless imagination. After years of studying the original manuscripts, working sketches and editions published during the Beethoven’s lifetime, and having edited the new Henle Urtext edition of The Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Perahia records two sonatas for the first time in his career, Op. 106 (Hammerklavier) & Op. 27/2 (Moonlight).
