This double-CD release is a second volume in pianist Paavali Jumppanen’s ongoing recording cycle of the Beethoven piano sonatas.

This new release contains six piano sonatas: three early Op.10 sonatas (published in 1798) and three sonatas written between 1804–06 (Opp.53, 54 & 57).

Piano Sonata Op.53 'Waldstein', completed after the 3rd Symphony, was described by Wilhelm von Lenz, an early biographer of Beethoven, as a “heroic symphony for piano”. Piano Sonata Op.57 'Appassionata' is undoubtedly Beethoven’s darkest and most aggressive work. The Sonata has been compared to Dante’s Inferno and Shakespeare’s bloodthirsty Macbeth.
