5.0 out of 5 stars about preconceptions, 5 Jun 2011
This review is from: Beethoven: Complete Piano Sonatas (Paul Lewis) 10 CD set (Audio CD)
Of-course there are many interpretations of these wonderful pieces. Many put their own slant on them and as such, I feel, are not as true to the original score as they ought to be.LACK OF EMOTION? Each and every piece is saturated with the emotion Beethoven intended . Lewis researched these pieces for some time before playing them live to fine tune them. Watching him play them live is to see a man completely immersed in the music and as one with the keyboard. Perhaps one needs a very good valve system to truly appreciate the light and shade along with the exceptional left hand/right hand symbiosis. There are very few CDs that can effect me on such a deep emotional level as this one. George Michael may have little, if anything, of musical merit to his name but his album title 'listen without prejudice' is very apt here. Indeed listen as if you have never heard these pieces before.
