Rudolf Buchbinder is one of the legendary artists of our time. His piano playing is an unparalleled fusion of the authority of a career spanning more than 60 years with spirit and spontaneity. His renditions are celebrated worldwide for their intellectual depth and musical freedom.
Particularly his renditions of Ludwig van Beethoven’s works are considered to be exemplary. He has performed the 32 piano sonatas cyclically all over the world more than 50 times and developed the rendition history of these works over decades. He was the first pianist to play all Beethoven sonatas at the Salzburg Festival over a festival summer. A live recording is available on DVD.
