Piano Sonata No. 2 in A Major; Op. 2; No. 2 by : Ludwig van Beethoven : Murray Perahia : Norbert Gertsch
Beethoven's three piano sonatas op. 2 were the first works in this genre to which he gave an opus number; thus signaling to the music world the special importance that he assigned to them. He wrote them during his first years in Vienna and; along with his op. 1 piano trios; they helped to establish his reputation as one of the most significant composers of his time. These three sonatas - all of them small masterpieces - are arranged in ascending order of difficulty and virtuosity. At the heart of this A-major Sonata is the well-known; profound Largo appassionato movement; whose staccato bass line is reminiscent of double bass pizzicati. It stands in stark contrast to the nimble Rondo-Finale; whose theme returns each time with ever more elaborate arabesques. Murray Perahia's fingerings have been tried and tested over several decades of performing these works; and offer a new approach to these milestones of the piano repertoire.
