This is the penultimate release in Angela Hewitt’s cycle of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas for the Hyperion label. The album opens with his very first sonata and includes the famous Waldstein, No. 21, one of his most technically challenging compositions. The listener’s understanding is again enhanced by Hewitt’s illuminating booklet notes, in which she sets out her approach to performing these most canonic of works in the entire piano literature.
