Rudolf Serkin, seriousness incarnate, also slightly belies his reputation by charming us with Beethoven’s small F sharp major Sonata, Op. 78, counterbalancing it with a powerful and detailed Waldstein Sonata in which he excelled. The central work is Reger’s imposing and little-known Variations and Fugue on a Theme by JS Bach.
