Piano Sonatas Volume 1


From the Publisher

Hans von Bülow described Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas as “Music’s New Testament”. Since its first appearance, Henle’s complete two-volume edition (HN 32 and HN 34) has been valued by specialists as the most dependable Urtext, and belongs in every pianist’s library. It contains an inexhaustible treasure of pianistic and musical mastery, setting technically challenging works with a high level of name-recognition, such as the “Pathétique”, “Moonlight”, “Tempest”, “Waldstein”, “Appassionata” and “Hammerklavier” sonatas, alongside other, less difficult works. HN 32 and HN 34 include Conrad Hansen’s much-admired fingerings; for those who want an Urtext edition without the fingerings Henle now offers HN 1032 and HN 1034.
