Hewitt’s Magical Beethoven

    Beethoven – Piano Sonatas Volume 5

Angela Hewitt has been praised in her earlier recordings of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, and now she turns her ‘uncluttered clarity of thought and inspired structural pacing’ to four more works spanning the composer’s career. We get to listen to the following selections on this CD, and it turns out that the Opus 110 is my favorite of them all!


  • Piano Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 2 No. 2
  • Piano Sonata No. 5 in C minor, Op. 10 No. 1
  • Piano Sonata No. 24 in F sharp major, Op. 78
  • Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110

Performed by Angela Hewitt (piano)

As always, Angela’s accompanying CD notes provide fascinating insights into both the music and her performances.
