Notes & Reviews:

Praised for her "boldly inflected readings" (Eichler, NY Times), NY based pianist Beth Levin has honed her interpretive and expressive skills since her days as a child prodigy in Philadelphia. Beethoven's Sonatas 30-32 (Op.109, 110, 111), famously composed "in a single breath," serve as fitting source material for Levin to express her skill.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Levin produces beautiful tones and has a good dynamic range in these sonatas. Some flexibility with rhythms is reasonable. I enjoy Levin's lyricism and expressivity, especially in the recitatives of 31:III.
