BEETHOVEN Sonata No. 8 in C minor, "Pathetique"
MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition
For decades, Vladimir Feltsman has dazzled audiences. Feltsman's "articulation was clean and precise, and the music's spirit came through clearly," wrote The New York Times of Haydn's Sonata in E-flat Major. He also performs the sublime Pictures at an Exhibition, of which one critic said, "Feltsman rendered Mussorgsky's musical descriptions with such personal but convincing characterizations that you'd think he wrote the piece."
The WPAS Piano Masters Series is generously underwritten by Robert and Betsy Feinberg.
