Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Vol. 4

" I was struck by Christian Leotta’s strict adherence to Beethoven’s markings in the music. He observed every nuance of dynamics and phrasing and, especially, pedaling. He has a powerful technique that gives him the fluency and strength on the keyboard, and his musical intelligence is compelling… unquestionably, this gifted and intelligent young pianist has a great deal to offer, and his Beethoven cycle, when completed, should prove to be of estimable interest ”. Fanfare, U.S.A.

Italian pianist Christian Leotta returns with Volume IV of his complete cycle of Beethoven’s piano sonatas.

Christian Leotta has been defined by the legendary Rosalyn Tureck as "an extraordinary talent with a beautiful innate musicality, ” and the great Karl Ulrich Schnabel wrote about him: “his respect of the indications of the Classical and Romantic composers is perfect and their understanding considerable.”
