This album explores some of Beethovena smaller-scale sonatas - the Three Sonatas, Op. 10, from the first-period; and two works from the middle period (the Sonata Op. 78, in two relatively brief movements, and the Sonata Op. 79, the shortest of the three-movement sonatas.
The Piano Sonatas Op. 10, composed in 179698, present Beethovens urge as a young composer to push the boundaries of already old-fashioned archetypes, in the use of the rondo-sonata form, but also in the quintessentially orchestral writing of the third sonata.
The two-movement Piano Sonata in F-sharp major, Op. 78, ' Thrse', and the Piano Sonata No. 25 in G major, Op. 79, 'Cuckoo', were both written in 1809. According to Carl Czerny, Beethoven himself considered Op. 78 and the 'Appassionata' Sonata as his favorite. Upon completing the Sonata Op. 106 Hammerklavier, he proclaimed it as being one of his favorites. The nicknames of the Sonatas are not originally by Beethoven.
Maurizio Zaccaria (Massenet, J.: Complete Piano Music - AE16003 AEVEA; Gershwin, G.: (Complete) Published Piano Works - AE17032 AEVEA), begins his music journey exploring Beethovens universe with his complete Piano Sonatas (32 + 4) in an interpretation that is original, explosive, and fully pianistic.
The project is recorded on two different Steinways D-274 by sound engineer and producer Alessandro Simonetto (OnClassical), in perfect stereo 88.2x24-bits, using historical microphones.
