Info for Beethoven: Late Sonatas, Opp. 101 & 106 Hammerklavier
'If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.' We could imagine that, like Newton, even Beethoven could have pronounced this adage. We might imagine, in fact, it being the wish of the Bonn master to go beyond the music of his time (eg the Sonata form) and rediscover the great forms of the past. OnClassical featured pianist, Giovanni Mazzocchin, reads the Beethoven's Sonatas No. 28 and No. 29 'Hammer-Klavier' with energy and depth. This recording is the second part of the Late Sonatas Project which also includes the late three sonatas (Opus. 109, 110, 111).
The recording, originally @88.2/24, is in perfect stereo (A-B), featuring Prism Sound pres/converters.
Giovanni Mazzocchin, piano
is born in Bassano del Grappa in 1994. He studied at the Conservatory 'Arrigo Pedrollo' in Vicenza under the guidance of Marco Tezza.
During the years of conservatory he also attended masterclasses with some notable pianists such as Carlo Grante, Alexander Madzar and Filippo Gamba. He degreed in 2012 with high degrees, honor and special mention.
Giovanni is now student at the University of the Padua in the faculty of Computer Science, and he combines the study with the musical interest.
He is as an OnClassical artist since November 2015. A first collaboration with the label includes the recording of the late sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven, Opus 101 & 106 (Hammerklavier) and Opus 109, 110, 111 (OnClassical Cat. OC141C), and the Bach's Goldberg Variations.
