(Amadeus). Acclaimed pianist Robert Taub offers the insights of a passionate musician who performs all 32 of Beethoven's well-loved pia sonatas in concert worldwide, bringing a fresh perspective on Beethoven, as the New York Times put it. In this book, he shares his intimate understanding of these works with listeners and players alike.
Pianist Robert Taub (Princeton, NJ) has performed throughout the United States, Europe, the Far East and Latin America. His book Playing the Beethoven Piano Sonatas evolved from a performance in Wolfensohn Hall at Princeton and subsequent ones. Taub served as the first artist-in-residence since T.S. Eliot at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, and was the first musician to hold the honor.
