Beethoven piano sonatas: “Moonlight,” “Pathétique,” “Appassionata”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I very much like these interpretations of these three beloved Beethoven sonatas, which are played here by Rudolf Serkin (1903-1991) with great sensitivity and with admirable restraint (which one doesn’t often see in performances in concert halls).
