Beethoven’s colossal “Hammerklavier” is the longest and perhaps the most complex of all his sonatas, with a slow movement of rare emotional depth (even by Beethoven’s standards) that prefigures Chopin in its ornamentation. The sonata juxtaposes explosive power, fragile tenderness, and earthy humor, capped by a double fugue that rivals Bach in a dazzling display of counterpoint. Pierre-Laurent Aimard—a pianist The Times (London) praised for “stupendous technique, remorseless energy, and fanatical … passion”—performs this masterpiece and more.
