Imagine Beethoven dancing a rhumba and you will have absolutely no idea what it sounds like when López-Nussa remakes the Sonata Pathétique. Far from comic—far, even, from ironic—the result has the natural grace of a Joplin rag. The Cuban pianist works the same alchemy on Bach, Ellington, and airs from his native island and fecund mind. —E.E.
