Beethoven's HammerKlavier Sonata
on: February 16, 2004, 12:20:10 PM
Anyone else really enjoy this piece? Just wondering as it's one of my favorites, but I hardly know any other pianists who play it, and those who do, don't like it?
Any idea why?

Meiting plays it and loves it!

Bernhard,

Who is Meiting?

On the Hammerklavier. Save the finale, this sonata is not as difficult as legend says. I would suggest start learning this work right from the Finale. If even that doesn't frustrate you, then the rest won't be hard to handle.

Ah I see. Another ethnic Chinese child prodigy, as cute-looking as Lang-lang!
Quite impressed by his playing. Curiously I could locate NO Chinese website on this pianist, and his own official site is all-English >_<

Just wondering what his Chinese name is in full.
