Notes & Reviews:

Schiff's much-admired art of musical characterization is particularly evident in these last six sonatas that combine dramatic and symphonic grandeur with intimate beauty. Vol VII includes the first three of the so-called "late" sonatas, which were written between 1814 and 1822. A highlight in any Beethoven cycle is the 45-minute long "Hammerklavier" which Schiff performs with customary structural awareness, individuality and outstanding sonic control.

The seventh volume, and penultimate release in Schiff's highly acclaimed and hugely popular series of Beethoven sonatas is here. Part VII, recorded once again live at Tonhalle Zurich, includes the first three of the so-called "late" sonatas which were written between 1814 and 1822.

The Guardian
Even in the hairiest passages of the Hammerklavier Sonata Op 106, Schiff's poise never deserts him, while the textural clarity, especially of the inner lines, is always a delight.
