Notes & Reviews:

This is a new recording produced by renowned pianist Laurent Cabasso. He is back to recording as seen here with a solid program including 2 works by Beethoven and Schubert.

Sunday Times
The sound is weighty, with a certain bite in the attack, but generous rather than hard. This is boldly coloured playing that projects positively, with extreme contrasts of dynamic. Cabasso ensures that even the most dense textures remain clear. There's an apt playfulness in the Beethoven Diabelli Variations, but he relishes the movements of deep gravitas, too.

BBC Music Magazine
He begins the Diabelli Variations with a light, transparent touch, and the first few variations have an easy swing with no histrionics, and no hint of affectation. As the textures thicken and the ideas grow in density, the music exerts a powerful gravitational pull... The remarkable achievement of this Diabelli is its sheer companionability, but it has not in any way been tamed.
