Description: The notes to this new series state its intent: “In the 250th Beethoven anniversary year, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has chosen this program of works by contemporary composers to illuminate and contextualize Beethoven’s extraordinary output for piano”. Wölfl is the rarest name here but his Op. 33 was recorded 25 years ago on the defunct Mandala label, so some Classical piano collectors at least may not have this sonata. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano).
