On January 25, Pierre-Laurent Aimard performs a recital that places Beethoven between Schönberg and Stockhausen at the Philharmonie de Paris. He opens with Schönberg’s Funf Klavierstücke, one of the composer’s first experiments with what eventually became his famous twelve-tone technique. Pierre-Laurent then explores two works by Beethoven: Sonata No. 7 and Sonata No. 23, “Appassionata.” The recital concludes with Stockhausen’s Klavierstücke IX.
