BARTÓK, BEETHOVEN, CHOPIN
When Béla Bartók composed his Suite Sz 62 in 1916, he was aiming to “refine piano technique into a more transparent style.” His technical and musical innovations for the instrument eventually culminated in the “piano year” 1926, when he completed three of his most significant piano works—including the Sonata Sz 80. In his solo recital, Yefim Bronfman combines it with Beethoven’s “Appassionata” and the Third Sonata by Frédéric Chopin.
