Legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini brings the complete Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle at Symphony Center to a poignant close with the composer’s sublime final three sonatas. “Pollini’s immaculate performance of Beethoven’s final sonatas brought out the simmering undercurrents, the glinting colors, the swirling detail. A majestic, peerless performance” (The Guardian).
