Audio Department Sneak Peek: Beth Levin A SINGLE BREATH (Beethoven's Last Three Piano Sonatas)

This week, the Audio Department features Beth Levin's upcoming release on Navona Records.

Praised for her “boldly inflected readings” (Jeremy Eichler, New York Times), “powerful technique” (Allan Kozinn, New York Times), and “purely pianistic panache” (Richard Dyer, Boston Globe), New York-based pianist Beth Levin has honed her interpretive and expressive skills since her days as a child prodigy in Philadelphia. Beethoven’s Sonatas 30-32 (Op. 109, 110, and 111), famously composed “in a single breath,” serve as fitting source material for Levin to express her skill, exploring the emotionally complex works with originality, grace, and respectful interpretation of Beethoven’s innovative and prescient brilliance.

A SINGLE BREATH was mastered by PARMA and will be released April 2013.  We hope you enjoy the sneak peek below.

  1. How I look forward to this release! It will join Beth's recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations as the primary selections in my library This is music I turn to often.
