Awadagin Pratt is one of the most unique and unconventional pianists out there today. He's not afraid to break or bend a few rules in order to give a fresh insight into a particular piece. This applies even when he takes on some of Beethoven's most obscure and less-performed sonatas. I cannot accurately describe exactly what he does with them, as I do not own the CD and have only listened to it a few times. What I can say is that his treatment is very complex, deep, and thoughtful, and it is like no other performance of Beethoven that you have ever heard. Check out the samples, try and find a friend that owns a copy, whatever, just listen and I guarantee that if you are a true classical music afficiando, you will find something to like. A neat and interesting take on some of Beethoven's most overlooked works!
