Beethoven: Piano Sonata No.1 in F minor, No.10 in G, No 21 in C, No.22 in F
Hyperion CDA 68220 @ £15 plu P&P
Gramphone “Hewitt likes to guide her listener, demonstrating this point and that, which can distract… As you might expect, her way with the fingery textures of the first movement [of the Waldstein] is dexterous and effortless, while the repeated left-hand chords have a crispness about them.”
About this CD …. The penultimate release in Angela Hewitt’s cycle of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas. The listener’s understanding is again enhanced by Angela’s illuminating booklet notes, in which she sets out her approach to performing these most canonic of works in the entire piano literature.
