Antoinette Perry piano


Navona Live and pianist Antoinette Perry are proud to present BEETHOVEN BOOKENDS. The album takes listeners from Opus 7—Beethoven’s personal favorite of his early sonatas—through the Bagatelles of Opus 119, and culminates with the composer’s final sonata, Opus 111. BEETHOVEN BOOKENDS is rich with the passion and dynamic range for which Beethoven is renowned; Perry applies what Le Dauphine Libéré has called her “irreproachable technique” to these legendary compositions. Her performances reveal a profound appreciation for Beethoven’s genius, as well as his iconoclasm. With careful attention to nuance, Perry exhibits both Beethoven’s mastery of classical forms and his desire to rebel against them. BEETHOVEN BOOKENDS, recorded at the Aspen Music Festival, puts listeners in the concert hall with one of the great living performers of Beethoven’s music.
