Notes & Reviews:

Abc classics launches its new australian masters series with a 3cd collection featuring tessa birnie's legendary interpretation of schubert's b-flat major piano sonata and ground-breaking performance of beethoven's moonlight sonata in the lower key of b minor. Regarded as one of the world's foremost interpreters of schubert, new zealand-born australia-based birnie was a profound musical thinker as well as a virtuoso and these recorded performances capture many of the highlights from her 40-year career.
