Notes & Reviews:

In his extensive liner notes, based on many letters and historical documents, Gary Cooper wonders why Beethoven chose to continue composing after the onset of deafness. He writes, “I cannot imagine that I am alone in feeling both puzzled & amazed by this, as well as gratitude that he did so, since many of his very fi nest, most sublime works stem from this later period. The key word here is imagination: while we imagine Beethoven should be pitied, I also imagine he pitied others since, through deafness, he was no longer prey to the prosaic nature of general conversation which he abhorred above all else; and in this newfound world of profound silence, his fecund imagination created nothing but unadulterated music, without reference to anyone but himself, and his maker.”

BBC Music Magazine
His is a supremely coherent view, always aware of how a variation fits into the bigger scheme. He may not conclusively convey Beethoven's humour and gusto, but the claveciniste-clarity of the elaborately ornamented Variation No. 6 and the intellectual grandeur of the Fugue are proof of a keen intelligence that elucidates Beethoven's musical thinking as surely as his instrument illuminates its textural ingenuity.
