Description
Over the course of a long career, Wilhelm Kempff (1895–1991) returned to the music of Beethoven again and again, establishing himself as one of the foremost interpreters of the composer's piano works. On these mid-1960s recordings, Kempff offers vibrant renditions of the piano sonatas no. 21 ("Waldstein") and no. 26 ("Les Adieux"), investing them with Mozartean warmth. Upon delivering the Piano Sonata no. 29 ("Hammerclavier") to his publishers, Beethoven remarked, "Now you have a sonata which will keep pianists busy for the next 50 years"; here Kempff gracefully navigates the technical challenges of this towering composition. Having requested Kempff to play the slow movement of this latter piece during a Finnish tour, an astonished Jean Sibelius told him, "You did not play that as a pianist but rather as a human being."
