Product Description


Beethoven is the subject of this rare Kempff video from the rich archives of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's French network. The great "Hammerklavier" Sonata (Op. 106) is here given a truly magisterial performance in which the astonishing complexities of this great work are elucidated in the hands of a supreme Beethoven interpreter. The G Major Rondo, on the other hand, played with elegant simplicity, aptly demonstrates the adage that less is often considerably more.
