Notes & Reviews:

Themed around the key of C minor, Turkish pianist Fazil Say plays Ludwig van Beethoven's Third Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, op.37 and two of Beethovens piano sonatas, the ever-popular 'Moonlight' (in C-sharp minor), op. 27/2, and the 32nd and final sonata, the op. 111. Gianandrea Noseda leads the Frankfurt Radio Symphony.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Fleet-fingered, ultra-articulated playing from Say, stopping just short of sounding mannered. His own cadenza in the Concerto's first movement builds impressive continuity into the coda.

The Guardian, 11th April 2014
Say and Gianandrea Noseda are hard-hitting radicals when it comes to Beethoven and their recording of the Third Piano Concerto is one of most startling performances on disc...this is very much a forward-looking account, epic in scale, darkly poetic...revealing the work to be very much the equal in scope and intensity of the concertos that followed.
