For the second volume of Beethoven sonatas, Nikolai Lugansky selects three milestones in the composer’s stylistic evolution: the Moonlight, the Tempest, and the Appassionata. The master of Bonn gradually broke with the models he inherited from the codes of Viennese Classicism in order to give free rein to affect, emotion, and Romantic gesture. With these three works, Beethoven laid the foundations of a free and humanistic art.
