Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, June 2012
They are virtuoso works, and Ronald Brautigam, who tends to favour quick tempos, plays them in genuine virtuoso style, but without ever failing to bring out the music's more expressive moments...A must for those interested in the byways of Beethoven's keyboard music.
Gramophone Magazine, July 2012
Brautigam's interpretations are stunning. He brings stylish character and life to each of the small variation sets and never misses a trick, so to speak...What breathtaking elan and point Brautigam brings to the flashy scales and biting trills throughout the [Salieri] Variations...He also gives one of the finest recorded performances of the Eroica Variations...Raise a glass to this terrific disc.
MusicWeb International, May 2012
BIS's SACD sonics are superb, and with the usual accessible and informative booklet notes by Roeland Hazendonk this is something of a highlight even of Brautigam's brilliant Beethoven.
