EDITORS’ NOTES

The sixth volume of Jonathan Biss’ run-through of the Beethoven sonatas contains what many call the composer’s most monumental and labyrinthine work in the genre: the “Hammerklavier.” Its “Adagio sostenuto” bears the perfect balance of pathos and despair, with Biss giving each chord and melody perfect calculation and nuanced delivery.
