Latest Piano Albums
Igor Levit:
Beethoven - Complete Sonatas

Igor Levit has now completed the recording of all 32 sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven, which he began in 2013. “For me, this recording is a conclusion of my past fifteen years. The literally life-changing encounter with the Diabelli Variations at the age of 17, which is effectively still ongoing, the daily engagement with Beethoven's sonatas, with Beethoven as a person, with myself, with the world in which I live - all that has also led to this recording.”

Jan Lisiecki:
Beethoven - Complete Concertos

After his recent album “Mendelssohn”, released in February, Lisiecki now quickly moves on to the five Beethoven concertos – once again in the double role as soloist and conductor, accompanied by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

Dong-Hyek Lim/Martha Argerich:
Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto 2/Symphonic Dances

This album shows two very different sides of Rachmaninov. Dong-Hyek Lim takes the role of soloist in the hyper-romantic Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor, and of duo partner to his mentor, Martha Argerich, in the composer’s final major work, the enthralling and enigmatic Symphonic Dances.
