Notes & Reviews:

Leotta returns with the final volume of the complete cycle of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas. Montreal's La Presse defined him as "a pianist of the highest order: technician, musician and interpreter all at once." The first four volumes were highly praised by international press and hailed Leotta as "one of the most extraordinary Beethovenian interpreters of our time" (Muzika21).

  • From ATMA Classique comes the fifth and final volume of Italian pianist Christian Leotta's complete Beethoven Piano Sonata traversal.
  • The first four volumes received international exposure and acclaim from critics worldwide, including from Fanfare in the U.S. and Musika21 in Poland.
