Battle of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas
Wednesday, November 07, 2012
This Sunday, WQXR's Marathon Sundays continues with Beethoven's piano sonatas, all 32 of them. But for today's Showdown, you only had to choose your favorite among three of the greats — "Pathetique," "Moonlight" and "Appassionata" — performed by three noteworthy Beethoven interpreters.
You selected Richard Goode performing Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23 in F Minor, Op. 57 "Appassionata." We played it at noon.
