Ludwig van Beethoven Piano Sonata N. 2 in C minor, o. 11. Introduction, The 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").

Backhaus recorded all 32 of these sonatas on his beloved Bosendorfer, a choice which seems perfectly matched to his style. The sound is bright, deep, warm, but crystal clear. There is not a lot of reverb or harmonic distortion here (vis-a-vis a Steinway). Backhaus avoids the pedal and as a result we have a set of Beethoven sonatas that stand out from the efforts of Kempff and Arrau. And unlike other objectivists such as Brendel, Backhaus has plenty of power and propulsion in his technique. The power and the glory are his - and ours. Stephen Kovacevich once said, "Wilhelm Backhaus was the only pianist who really understood Beethoven.
