Second evening of four exceptional concerts dedicated to Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas, performed by Christian Leotta, one of the greatest interpreter of Beethoven of our day.
Christian Leotta has been defined by the legendary Rosalyn Tureck as “an extraordinary talent with a beautiful innate musicality”, and the great Karl Ulrich Schnabel wrote about him: “his respect of the indications of the Classical and Romantic composers is perfect and their understanding considerable”.
Christian is a native of Catania, Italy, and now lives in Como. Appearing in Montreal in 2002, at the age of only 22, Christian Leotta is the youngest pianist since the youthful Daniel Barenboim ever to undertake a recital series encompassing the entire corpus of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas. Following the extraordinary success of his live performances of Beethoven, in 2007 Atma Classique signed Christian Leotta to record the entire corpus of the 32 Piano Sonatas in a collection of five two-CD sets, released between 2008 and 2014.
