Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Part XI
The Chatham University Music Program concert series began its Spring semester with the continuation of Walter Morales’s Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas series. Part XI was a pianistic success, as was proven by the overflowing Founders’ Room and all-around enthusiasm for Beethoven. Morales’s display of personally collected Beethoven scholarship (spanning about six music stands) showed his passion and expertise for the composer and his music, all of which clearly informed Morales’s interpretation and gave life to the attentive precision with which he played. There wasn’t a better way to begin the decade of the ’20s!
