After a critically acclaimed first Beethoven album featuring the sonatas opp. 27 and 28, the French pianist decided to follow one of his most vivid dreams and record the complete cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas. The whole cycle will be released on ZeD Classics and should be completed by 2025.
Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont will record the second volume in Prague in September 2016. The album, featuring the sonatas op.10 et the sonata op. 13 “pathétique” should be out for Christmas 2016.
The first volume, release in 2014 on Resonus Classics, will be remastered and reissued digitally and on CD under ZeD Classics before the end of 2016.
“Beethoven is a composer I’ve always felt close to, and recording the 32 sonatas, maybe the pieces that fascinates me the most, seems to me a natural result of my music explorations” said the pianist. Dablemont’s fresh perspective always cast a new light these well-known works and is often praised both by the audience and professional music critics.

Today Pierre-Arnaud has released Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont plays Bach, his third album, on ZeD Classics. The record follows Dablemont’s two first acclaimed albums Introducing Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont (2012) and Beethoven opp. 27 & 28 (2014). “This album is the result of a long exploration of Bach works on a modern piano”, says pianist Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont.
The album features some of the most celebrated keyboard works, the toccata in E minor, the first partita in B-flat Major and the sixth partita in E minor. “This album is the result of a long exploration of Bach works on a modern piano”, said the pianist. “Releasing this album is like inviting the listener in my secret garden, in my inner musical life”, he added.
Audiophilia’s Anthony Kershaw sums it all up: “The music unfolds so naturally — nothing seems strained, nothing forced. The best of Bach.”
The album is available on CD on Bandcamp and in stores, in digital on all major platforms (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify…) and in HD on HIGHRESAUDIO.
Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont and ZeD have just released a new video interview for “Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont plays Bach” featuring Romain Zémiri and Pierre-Arnaud.

”…The music unfolds so naturally — nothing seems strained, nothing forced. The best of Bach.„
”…The Toccata in E minor is an exquisite masterpiece played to near perfection … [The partitas], too, are played superbly…„
Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia
”…This incredibly intimate album is recorded with such clarity that all of the subtleties of Dablemont’s playing is easily perceptible to a listener, bringing one quite quickly into Dablemont’s musical world, emphasised by his refined and pristine phrasing as well as his sensitivity towards each harmonic shift.„
