About the album


Here is one Mélodie Zhao’s latest dreams come true : having recorded Liszt and Chopin’s Etudes at an incredibly young age, she set herself the intrepid challenge of recording all of Beethoven’s Sonatas (there are 32 of them after all) in just under a year, and, if you please… for her twentieth birthday!
It is an exploit, possibly even a record, but that’s not the point: indeed, clarity, transparency, respect for the text, ardour and passion are the chosen ingredients of this amazing complete recording.
Throughout this monumental production, you will discover the voice both assertive and sensitive of a unique musician.
