    Barenboim Project to 'strip' Beethoven

    The 32 piano sonatas that Beethoven composed between 1799 and 1824, including some of his most recognized works like the "Moonlight" and "Appassionata" sonatas, are often considered among the German composer's finest and most personal musical achievements.

    But according to Miyoko Nakaya Lotto, a veteran piano teacher at New York University and the Manhattan School of Music, there's a problem with a lot of the Beethoven music we hear today.

    Why should there be a definitive version? Music (all music) invokes different emotions in different people--thus we have different interpretations that appeal to different people. Even Beethoven himself would have played the pieces differently at different times.
