Ultimate Beethoven Aug 4, 2007
Wilfred Mellers casts the most breadthtaking perspective on Beethoven, ever. Well, we do have Tovey, so take a bit of that breadth away.. and so many enlightening recordings, countless opportunities to hear the great living performers.
Back to Mellers:his brilliantly lit path, a trajectory, travels primarily through the piano sonatas, leading to the ulitmate work: the Missa Solemnis.
If you want to know the truth about Beethoven, in the purests of terms, this is The Book.
And if you want your Beethoven Piano Sontatas wildly true, Get Annie Fischer's complete setBeethoven: Complete Piano Sonatas; add Timothy Ehlen's Op.101, and any of Angela Hewitt's Beethoven work (start now with the disk of her 10/3, 7, and 57,Beethoven: Piano Sonatas, Opp. 57 "Appassionata", 10/3, 7 and look for more she may have yet to introduce.
