Pianist Ronald Brautigam is one of Holland's most respected musicians, a pupil of the legendary Rudoph Serkin who performs regularly with the world's leading orchestras and conductors. His many acclaimed recordings include the complete sonatas of Beethoven, and Beethoven is the foundation of this marvellous programme which culminates in his heroic Appassionata Sonata. Brautigam's ever-questing mission to explore unfamiliar repertoire introduces evocative music by Scots composer Ronald Stevenson too.

"Brautigam's...stunning performances that are technically breathtaking, stylistically astute, emotionally intense and musically alive in every moment". Gramophone Magazine
