Ibes. Willem - Beethoven Sonata Opus 101 Cd
- Our Price:
This CD features a first attempt to translate my discoveries concerning the Immortal Beloved in sound. The booklet details how I arrived at my understanding of her identity and how the name "Dorothea" permeates the work from beginning to end. In fact, the whole sonata develops seamlessly out of the motif contained in the first two measures. I have had to make an Herculean effort to not fall victim to " the romantic virus" and some of that effort shows; but at least the "silences of articulation" are in their proper place (mostly) so that Beethoven's great love-paean becomes intelligible.I prefer my later recording of the work (in " A Beethoven Triptych") but there is in this present album the undeniable excitement of a first love-affair.
