Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
He is a towering musical presence.

Washington Post
Maurizio Pollini has been one of the defining . . . pianists of the last 50 years.

BBC Music Magazine
... a "grand master".

BBC Music Magazine
[Pollini] has complete mastery of the piano, but something more that goes beyond the notes. There's a joy in his own virtuosity, the ease and freedom when so much energy flows through a performer with nothing to hinder the imagination.

Deutsche Grammophon is proud to release a stunning new recording of Beethoven piano sonatas by Maurizio Pollini This final recording from 2014 brings a 40-year project to completion: He now presents studio recordings of all 32 Beethoven piano sonatas The piano sonatas are central to Beethoven's oeuvre. As a composer and virtuoso pianist himself, he wrote works for the instrument from the beginning to the end of his career, so a cycle of the piano sonatas gives an almost unparalleled insight into his development as a composer and as a master of the instrument Maestro Pollini is willing to do interviews on this milestone in his career The simultaneous release of the new recording and the box is an ideal hook for your specialist journalists to prepare a portrait about this incredible artist.
