Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas, from the haunting stillness of the opening adagio of the "Moonlight" to the scorching ferocity of the finale of the "Appassionata", are central to his music.

Gramophone
The recording of the Moonlight is exemplary, reflecting the pianist's formidable attack without harshness... the finale is a model of stormy authority and poetry.
