Sonata in D Major for Piano 4 Hands, Op. 6
II. Rondo: Moderato
From BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Duets (Complete) (A. and S. Hamann) (2012)
Released by Grand Piano
Beethoven’s compositions for piano duet embrace works written for students as well as those designed for aristocratic acquaintances and friends. This release presents two recordings of the complete works: the first (CD 1) on a modern Yamaha piano, and the second (CD 2) on chronologically accurate reproductions of the fortepianos Beethoven was composing on at the time. The modern piano was recorded in a concert hall, whereas the period instrument recording was made in a much more intimate space, showcasing the salon performance settings of the past.
