Notes & Reviews:
This set brings together Beethoven's complete piano sonatas, recorded live by François-Frederic Guy during the concerts he gave at the Arsenal in Metz, France. It bears witness to Guy's impressive maturity in face of a monumental cycle, his generosity and great musical integrity. He sheds fascinating light on this cycle approaching it with an elan and spontaneity unique to concerts. As a bonus the video recording made during a concert given at the Opera Garnier in Monaco on June 20, 2013, with the Pastorale, Moonlight and Hammerklavier Sonatas is included.
