Vladimir Ashkenazy Beethoven: Pno Sonatas Nos 21 & 29
- Released: April 13, 2010
- Label: Eloquence Australia
The two sonatas featured on this release charted unprecedented paths of sonority and virtuosity, although the musical and pianistic aims radically differ. Vladimir ashkenazy re-recorded them both, the 'hammerklavier' for his complete beethoven sonata cycle, and the 'waldstein' as a digital remake for a separate cd. The rare and much sought-after 1967 recording of the 'hammerklavier' - vladimir ashkenazy's first of any beethoven sonata for decca - is sharply delineated and full of tensile energy, the fugal finale's gnarlier sequences more incisively articulated than his later remake.
