Steven Osborne is wearing a black jacket and black top, hands clasped, looking down contemplating. Blue corrugated metal background.

In his last three piano sonatas, Beethoven penned a sublime musical self-portrait riddled with otherworldly insight. “Phenomenally good” pianist Steven Osborne (Arts Desk) interprets these intimate solo works anew, unpacking the composer’s genius through a revelatory performance channeling tenderness, grief, and ecstasy.

The Program

“A musician of profound individuality and invention.”
– Guardian (U.K.)
“Beautifully poised and unfailingly intelligent...the crystal clarity of Osborne’s exquisitely polished pianism is an unalloyed joy to the ear.”
– International Record Review
