Ludwig van Beethoven’s sonatas are regarded as the “new testament” of piano literature. This includes both his more recognizable works as well as later, more philosophical compositions. The great pianists of our time still perform them, some fail trying to do so. The pianists of our Bad Kissingen Piano Olympics will perform 32 of the most important of these works over the course of five concerts.
