Says Ganz, "It's a perfect vehicle to express what many of us have been feeling through this incredibly difficult year. I argue that Beethoven was the first to give full expression to that dimension of human experience, and that in doing so he began to pave the way from the Classical to the Romantic era. I'll discuss that and then play the entire sonata.” Music Department Robert Hayes America/New_York public
