Each pianist decides how forward-looking to make the music sound. Because he aligns with my own tastes, I was happy that Giltburg pours considerable energy into his playing without an inclination toward aristocratic elegance. Rough edges are Beethovenian at any phase in his career. Sonata No. 1 is in F Minor, and when Beethoven switches to major keys (A and C) for the next two sonatas, Giltburg comments that they emphasize charm, good humor, and extroversion.
