Notes & Reviews:

Although the three sonatas recorded here are among the most frequently performed of Beethoven's works, it is far rarer to hear them played on a pianoforte of the time. The sonatas were composed during the brief period spanning1801 - 1806, exactly the same period that saw the arrival of the Jakob Weimes pianoforte used here. By playing these sonatas on the piano that first played them, we feel the composer's joy in exploiting the pianoforte's recently acquired capacities, and Beethoven's transgressive force becomes evident because the instrument is being pushed to its limits...

Soo Park was born in Seoul, Korea. She studied piano in France with Catherine Collard and Pierre Reach, and fortepiano with Patrick Cohen in the CNSM de Paris. She was awarded the Premier Prix of fortepiano by the unanimous decision of the jury, before going on to study a post-graduate program with Christophe Coin. She was laureate of the 1998 Early Music Competition of Brugge. Now living in France, she has played with Ensemble Philidor, Véronique Dietschy, and Ensemble XVIII-21.
