Recording 32 Piano Sonatas by Beethoven
Three years ago, Misha Fomin started working on a prestigious and challenging project, the registration
of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas. In his own words, “It has been a long cherished dream of mine. I see it
as an enormous challenge, like a musical Olympus.” The enormous variety and individuality of these masterpieces require both strong musicality and power of expression, as well as exceptional mastery of
the instrument. The project will be completed by 2027, exactly 200 years after the death of Beethoven. “The intensive study of these sonatas is fascinating and inspiring,” says Fomin.
