SOLOMON PLAYS BEETHOVEN,
BACH AND MOZART



On this page, Solomon plays Beethoven to perfection.  In addition, there are several works by Bach and three sonatas by Mozart.  You will not hear finer interpretations of these works, which does not mean that you will not find others that you prefer.  But Solomon is a consumate artist whose playing will not disappoint even those who have a particular favorite against whom all others are compared.

And if you want to hear Solomon play four of the five Beethoven piano concerti as well as the Archduke Trio and a number of other fabulous performance of concerti by Mozart, Brahms, Tchaikovsy, and others, go to the Solomon plays Concerti page.
