Review: "Our Neighbor in Montclair, George Walker"

Review of my Beethoven “Pathétique” at the Beethoven Institute.

The concert ended with a performance of Beethoven’s “Pathétique” Sonata by the pianist Ignat Solzhenitsyn. He’s a dear friend of mine—Ignat, I mean, though I consider Beethoven a dear friend as well—so I must not review. Still, he played the sonata with Beethoven-like strength, soulfulness, and vividness. Friendship or not, it’s true.
