For his debut on Warner Classics, the 17-year-old pianist Yoav Levanon has chosen a demanding programme of works by Liszt, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Schumann. Liszt's mighty Sonata in B minor forms the centrepiece of A Monument for Beethoven, an album honouring the four composers' contribution to the festivities which in 1845 marked Beethoven's 75th anniversary in the city of Bonn, his birthplace. When Yoav Levanon performed the programme in Paris in 2020, Le Monde declared him "already a great pianist". He describes the album as "a "musical journey that traverses many distinct planes" and which is "emblematic of the great fellowship and solidarity that exists among musicians".
