The Late Piano Sonatas & Bagatelles


Josep Colom’s latest album includes Beethoven’s legendary last three piano sonatas (Opp. 109-111) and Bonn genius’ latest piano work, the Bagatelles op.126. Colom’s original and exceptional vision brings out a fresh and different view on Beethoven’s masterpieces, one which creates a single narrative path to weave together the individual movements of these three sonatas and the six bagatelles by means of a fascinating play of analogies and contrasts. The bagatelles act, in a way, as preludes to the sonatas, with transitional passages that stem from the pianist’s own imagination.
