About the album

This is the third volume of a succesful series of piano sonatas by Beethoven, performed by Paul Komen on authentic instruments. Prior volumes contained his last three sonatas and sonatas no. 21-23, from Beethoven's middle period. Fanfare described the series as follows: “Komen's remarkable pianism and musicianship combine to provide one of the finest accounts in the catalog ... these first-rate performances belong in the collection of anyone who cares about this music.”

Paul komen made his debut aged 13 with a radio recording of works by Bach and Scriabin. Some years later he studied at the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam with Jan Wijn, where he graduated cum laude. In 1981, he made his debut in England at the Wigmore Hall in London. During this occasion, one of his recordings was handed to Queen Elizabeth. Later, he performed in the Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall and the National Gallery among many other great concert halls.
