HD-Vinyl Mono 24/96 (Columbia) Ludwig van Beethoven – Piano Sonatas No. 30 & 31 – Walter Gieseking

Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this gem
Everybody knows about Gieseking and Debussy, but for some reason I (and perhaps others) came late to the party featuring Gieseking and Beethoven. Silly me. What a great match. This is old world–perhaps best described as an older style of playing. Gieseking’s pianism and technical prowess is fabulous, but he puts greater emphasis on the soul, and the arc of each sonata. It fits like a glove, in my opinion.
