In August Sony Classical releases a new CD with the participation of Compofactur – Matthias Spindler.
Spindler’s contribution to this release concerns the recordings of the two Piano Sonatas by Beethoven. The recording sessions were produced with his support following a long planning period and finally took place in September 2016 at Schloss Elmau.
These recordings are historically important as they were Maestro Pogorelich’s first recordings after 21 years. The last time he recorded was in September 1995 and the result (Chopin: Four Scherzi) was released in October 1998.
The new Beethoven Piano Sonatas were first released in November 2016 on IDAGIO. Now, Sony Classical releases these Beethoven recordings for the first time on CD.
