Beethoven the Last Sonatas
On March 4, 2022, Steinway & Sons will release The Last Sonatas of Beethoven, Op. 109, 110, and 111, marking pianist Gerardo Teissonnière’s debut on the label. Teissonnière – who began his musical studies in Puerto Rico and now resides in Cleveland where he is on faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music – began performing all of Beethoven’s works for piano and orchestra in 2019, presenting a series of solo recitals featuring works by and dedicated to the composer's 250th anniversary in 2020. The album was recorded during the pandemic on a Steinway & Sons Model D, with the GRAMMY® Award-winning team of producer Elaine Martone, editor Erica Brenner, and sound engineer Daniel Shores at the helm.
