New Set of Beethoven - HJ Lim Records 30 Sonatas by Beethoven

In August 2010, HJ Lim performed the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas over eight consecutive days in Paris and one year later she went on to record the complete cycle for EMI Classics with whom she now records exclusively.

In an interview with host John Clare, HJ talks about leaving two of the sonatas out (Beethoven did not approve of their publication, his brother did!) and about choosing the right tempi that Beethoven wanted.
