Notes & Reviews:

Among his generation of concert artists, pianist Awadagin Pratt is acclaimed for his musical insight and intensely involving performances in recital and with symphony orchestras. Early in his career, Pratt won the Naumburg International Piano Competition becoming the first African-American classical instrumentalist to win first prize in this international competition. In Beethoven: Piano Sonatas, his second release from EMI Classics, Pratt tackles Beethoven's late piano sonatas with a robust freshness and unaffected musicality. The result is intimate, playful, and charming.
