Notes & Reviews:

"The performance of Op. 110 itself, as with all of the final sonatas so far, is superb, with everything pointing toward the final fugue. Sample that fugue, track 11, to hear Ohlsson at his formidable technical best. His pace is deliberate, but the amount of detail he excavates from the depths of Beethoven's polyphony is impressive. Hear the dense notes that spill out of the double-time passage at the end; Ohlsson gives you material to chew on for many hearings here. Ohlsson's Beethoven has the value of revealing its ideas only gradually, and that in itself is very much worthy of notice." -All Music Guide
