This 1985 recording of Irish pianist John O'Conor performing three of Beethoven's most popular sonatas was made in London using Sony equipment was a typical early Telarc production: richly detailed, warmly recorded, and, as the announced first volume of a complete cycle, highly ambitious. O'Conor's performance had the inwardness to play the opening of the "Moonlight," the drama to play the opening of the "Pathétique," and the strength to play the finale of the "Appassionata.

Sample this album Artist (Sample). O'Conor plays Beethoven's sonatas with all the feeling i imagine Beethoven felt as he was writing them. Telarc has recorded more volumes of O'Conor playing the sonatas that i enjoy immensely and ZZ taught O'Conor.

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his 32 piano sonatas between 1795 and 1822. Although originally not intended to be a meaningful whole, as a set they compose one of the most important collections of works in the history of music. Hans von Bülow called them "The New Testament" of the piano literature (Johann Sebastian Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier being "The Old Testament").
