Beethoven's Piano Sonatas - Lisa Yui

Uploaded On:  Tuesday May 14, 2013

Lisa Yui, Yamaha Artist and piano faculty member at the Manhattan School of Music, chooses two of Beethoven's middle period sonatas (Op. 53 "Waldstein" and Op. 57 "Appassionata") to illustrate his utter mastery of writing for piano. Yui's performance and description of these sonatas illustrate the gamut of emotional, musical, and physical heights scaled by Beethoven as he wrote for his own instrument. --This performance was recorded at Yamaha Artist Services, New York, in December 2012.
