Louis Lortie –
The Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas*
Louis Lortie | Piano
The insightful and probing French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie possesses a unique interpretative voice with the “combination of total spontaneity and meditated ripeness that only great pianists have” (The Times).
As the world celebrates the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, Lortie performs the complete Beethoven piano sonatas*,
an incredible corpus comprising of 32 pieces, many of which are staples of the piano literature.
The cycle is currently being filmed over a series of seven recitals spanning the 2020/21 season at Bourgie Hall
of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
“Possibly the finest Beethoven since the time of Wilhelm Kempff. “ (Die Welt)
