BEETHOVEN Sonata No 32 in C minor Op 111
Winner of the Gold Medal at the prestigious Royal Overseas League Competition, Alexander Soares has developed an impressive reputation as an artist of huge intensity. The centrepiece of this rich and varied programme is Beethoven’s final piano sonata: a dramatic and powerful work defined by two movements of contrasting character. The sonata represents the culmination of his compositional development for the piano and cements his towering influence over the genre.
