Jacket NM / LP NM
This beautiful and somewhat elusive LP from Capitol (SP 8584, US pressing, rainbow label / Capitol label at 12 o’clock, stereo) features pianist Leonard Pennario in a triptych of superb performances of piano sonatas by Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn recorded circa 1961.
The exact contents are as follows:
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 13 in E-flat Major Op. 27 No. 1
Mozart: Piano Sonata No. 10 in C Major K. 330
Haydn: Piano Sonata No. 23 in F Major
There are insightful liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by Ralph O’Connor, povided in English only. The striking cover art is uncredited, alas.
