Beethoven's Earthshaking and Bone-crushing Masterpiece


Lecture and Recital

In a career spanning more than five decades, Robert Silverman has climbed every peak of serious pianism: lauded performances of the complete sonata cycles by Beethoven and Mozart; concerts in prestigious halls across the globe; and orchestral appearances under the batons of such renowned conductors as Ozawa, Gardiner, and J√§rvi with leading orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, the Sydney Symphony, the BBC (London) Symphony, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, and every major orchestra in Canada. Robert Silverman's discography includes over 30 CDs and a dozen LPs, including his Grand Prix du Disque–winning recording of Liszt's piano music and his Juno Award–shortlisted recording of all 32 Beethoven sonatas.
