Back for more punishment.

Of course, the first movement of this sonata is the famous one, but I think it pales in comparison to the second and third. I like Barenboim’s recordings of these sonatas because I think they’re well balanced. They’re warm but not overly sentimental, virtuosic (obviously) without being flamboyant. Compared to other recordings I’ve heard, they might be a bit “dry”, but I actually prefer that.

I hope you found something you liked this week.
