In this recording, seven-time GRAMMY Award-winning pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim tackles the so-called "New Testament" of music, Ludwig van BeethovenEUR(TM)s thirty-two piano sonatas. Composed over twenty-five years and embodying the shift of musical taste from the Classic to the Romantic, their performance requires a musician of extraordinary versatility. Barenboim is one such pianist EUR" his recordings run the gamut from Bach and Mozart to Bruckner and Bartok. In following in the footsteps of such masters as Artur Schnabel, Barenboim truly shows himself to be among the greatest living musicians.
