In the third of five DVD releases seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim plays the Piano Sonatas 14 - 21 of Ludwig van Beethoven’s thirty-two piano sonatas, the so-called ‘New Testament’ of music. 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 – his recordings run the gamut from Bach and Mozart to Bruckner and Bartók. In following in the footsteps of such masters as Artur Schnabel, Barenboim truly shows himself to be among the greatest living musicians. Recorded at Palais Kinsky and Schloss Hetzendorf, Vienna, 1983-84.
