Christian Leotta has made a speciality of the Beethoven Piano sonatas. Appearing in Montreal in 2002 at the age of 22, he was the youngest pianist since Barenboim to undertake the complete cycle of the 32 sonatas in recital. Since then, Leotta has performed 12 complete cycles in Madrid, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Vancouver, and Quebec City, as well as in his native Italy.
