Playing the Beethoven Piano Sonatas
Internationally acclaimed pianist Robert Taub offers the unique insights of a passionate and intelligent musician who performs all thirty-two of Beethoven’s well-loved piano sonatas in concert worldwide. In Playing the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Taub shares his intimate understanding of these essential works with listeners and players alike.
He explains what he has learned from Beethoven’s own writings and autograph scores: Beethoven’s convictions about the integrity of each work; the refinements he made in his sketchbooks; his outspoken opinions about tempo, pedaling, and the rest of the book, Taub considers each of the thirty-two sonatas grouped into nine programs, looking beyond just “getting the notes” to convey the essence of each work and to understand its place in the evolution of Beethoven’s revolutionary artistry.
