Beethoven: Piano Sonatas, Vol. 1

Adam Golka, piano

Adam has studied with Alfred Brendel, Sir András Schiff, Leon Fleisher, and Murray Perahia, all Beethoven specialists. He played all 32 Beethoven sonatas in an eight-concert series last year, coupled with videos explaining his views on each sonata. He has played all the sonatas in public since the age of 18. This, his first album of his Beethoven cycle, was released on First Hand Records in 2020.
