For his fourth release on the Fuga Libera label, the pianist and fortepianist Piet Kuijken, professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Antwerp Conservatory, presents a programme of music by Ludwig van Beethoven. The starting point of this double album is an artistic approach that is both pedagogical and musical: the first CD contains pieces such as the Sonate Pathétique, op.13 and the Sonata, op.110 performed on a historical piano (a Tomkison original from 1808), while the second invites you to compare this with pieces of the same magnitude – the Appassionata Sonata, op.23 and the imposing,, op.111, amongst others – played on a modern piano.
A text written by the eminent musician invites you to follow the artist’s approach, within the same type of repertory when faced with these two different instruments.
A sensitive and interesting album to help you discover all the different facets of this artist!
