Meeting a marvel. The 32 piano sonatas written by Ludwig van Beethoven, who was born 250 years ago, together comprise one of the most significant works of art created in the history of music, one that reinterpreted the relationship between the genre and the instrument, wrapping up the development of the Classical piano sonata form and opening the way toward Romanticism. Over the course of nine concerts to be held over two days, Müpa Budapest will present the audience with all 32 personal testaments in the order they were created, with the procession of 32 different performers also serving as a celebration of the storied and internationally renowned Hungarian school of piano playing.
