About the album

A lovely collection of piano works by Beethoven from the composer's middle period. The Andante in F major was originally meant as the slow movement for the famous Waldstein Sonata, but in the end Beethoven found it too long and had it published separately (it is also known as Beethoven's Andante Favori). The Sonata Op. 28 is the most idyllic of all of Beethoven's piano sonatas. The delightful miniatures that appeared under the title Bagatelles are for the most part elaborations of musical material that Beethoven had sketched out in an earlier period.

Trudelies Leonhardt plays them here on an original Viennese piano from the period and once again shows herself the most sincere of performers, bringing these wonderful pieces to life as only a true musician of her stature can.

Bijzondere collectie pianowerken van Beethoven
Dit album bevat een innemende collectie van pianowerken van Beethoven uit de midden periode van de componist. De Andante in F majeur was oorspronkelijk bedoeld als langzaam deel voor de beroemde Waldstein Sonate, maar uiteindelijk vond Beethoven het te lang en publiceerde hij het afzonderlijk. Inmiddels staat het stuk ook wel bekend als Beethovens "Andante Favori". Het stuk is samen te horen met de Sonata Op. 28, de meest idyllische van alle Beethoven pianosonates.

Trudelies Leonhardt komt uit een muzikale familie en is de zus van de bekende klavecimbelspeler en dirigent Gustav Leonhardt. Ze heeft met vele grote orkesten gespeeld zoals het Concertgebouw Orkest. Ze is gespecialiseerd in pianoforte, de voorganger van de moderne piano, waarop de dynamiekovergangen van piano naar forte en andersom soepeler verlopen. Op dit album speelt Trudelies Leonhardt op een originele Weense piano uit de tijd van Beethoven en laat daarmee weer zien dat ze een van de meest tijdsgetrouwe artiesten is. Ze brengt deze wonderlijke stukken tot leven zoals alleen een echte musicus van haar grootte dat kan.

Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include nine symphonies, five piano concertos, one violin concerto, 32 piano sonatas, 16 string quartets, his great Mass the Missa solemnis, and one opera, Fidelio. Together with Mozart and Haydn, he was part of the First Viennese School.    Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven and by composer and conductor Christian Gottlob...

Together with Mozart and Haydn, he was part of the First Viennese School. Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven and by composer and conductor Christian Gottlob Neefe. At the age of 21 he moved to Vienna, where he began studying composition with Joseph Haydn, and gained a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. He lived in Vienna until his death. By his late 20s his hearing began to deteriorate, and by the last decade of his life he was almost totally deaf. In 1811 he gave up conducting and performing in public but continued to compose; many of his most admired works come from these last 15 years of his life.
