The sonatas recorded were Beethoven Sonatas No. 12, 22 and 23. This album contains his recordings of Piano Sonata No. 12 and No. 23. Beethoven's piano sonatas are at the pinnacle of classical music repertoire for piano sonatas, and the Appassionata Sonata (No. 23) and the Funeral March Sonata (No. 12), are among the best of Beethoven's 3. The Appassionata is played at a fast tempo and filled with grandeur and forte. The Funeral March sonata is on the other end of the spectrum and played with excellent sense of control and heart. Richter did not play all 32 sonatas, but he performed all but 10 and these are two of his best recordings.

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").

The nickname "Appassionata" appears nowhere in the manuscript; instead, Beethoven apparently subtitled it as "La Passionata. There are many changes and corrections in notation throughout.
