All thirty five Beethoven piano sonatas
Bärenreiter and editor Jonathan Del Mar celebrate their new Urtext edition in London
In September 2019 the Bärenreiter publication project of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Complete Sonatas for Pianoforte edited by Jonathan Del Mar came to a close, well-timed for the 250th anniversary of this great composer in 2020. This new Bärenreiter Urtext edition will now be duly celebrated on 28 February in a concert at the Wigmore Hall in London. In a Pre-Concert talk Del Mar will speak about his editorial work on this monumental project. This will be followed by a performance of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas op. 10 no. 2, op. 14 no. 2, op. 31 no. 3 and op. 106 (“Hammerklavier“) by eminent pianist Jonathan Biss. From 2011–2019 Biss recorded the complete Beethoven piano sonatas which have been released on 9 CDs by Orchid Classics.
