BEETHOVEN Sonata No. 16 in G Major, Op. 31, No. 1 Sonata No. 27 in E minor, Op. 90 Six Bagatelles, Op. 126 Sonata No. 29 in B-flat Major, Op. 106, Hammerklavier A magisterial presence at the keyboard, Richard Goode was the first American pianist to record the complete Beethoven sonatas. Decades later, he remains "among the most persuasive Beethoven interpreters of our time" (San Francisco Chronicle), known for performances of towering intellect, refinement, and insight. Here, he plays Beethoven's sprightly, rarely heard Bagatelles, and balances the breezy and playful Sonata in G Major, Op. 31, No. 1 with the monumental Hammerklavier, one of the most demanding works in the solo piano repertoire.
