“Outstanding Beethoven all round. The special attraction is the rare spiritual dimension in Houstoun’s playing of the serene finales. It’s as though Beethoven were no longer of this planet when he wrote them” The Listener

Acclaimed New Zealand pianist Michael Houstoun performs all 32 Beethoven piano sonatas in 40 concerts throughout New Zealand in 2013 in Beethoven reCYCLE 2013.

Part Three of Beethoven reCYCLE 2013 concludes the series across three programmes each featuring either the Pathetique, Moonlight or Les Adieux sonatas. Michael performs 'Pathetique' in Dunedin on Thursday 17 October.

Michael credits Beethoven for awakening his love of music. “It was Beethoven who woke me up to myself as a musician. I heard a recording of my mother’s when I was very young and it was like a light went on.”

Michael Houstoun is not only New Zealand’s foremost Beethoven pianist, internationally he ranks among the great Beethoven pianists of our age. He celebrates his 60th birthday with this historic cycle of 32 Beethoven sonatas, some of the supreme treasures of human artistic endeavour.

Sonata in A, Op 2, No 2
Sonata in C minor, Op 13 'Pathetique'
