PUBLICITY INFORMATION Our on-going Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle features one of the shortest and most concentrated of his sonatas - no.27 in E minor, op.90, a work whose two movements were dubbed by the composer as 'the battle between head and heart' and 'a conversation with his beloved'. It's performed today by Richard Goode, one of the leading Beethoven interpreters of his generation.
