Notes & Reviews:

Brand new recordings of four of Beethoven's most beloved works for solo piano. Radoslav Kvapil's numerous previous releases for Musical Concepts and Alto have been received with excellent critical praise and customer response. Kvapil is best known as a foremost champion of Czech piano music, but his recordings of Beethoven piano works have also been lauded. Kvapil gives these sonatas a deft and sensitive treatment, his command of the material shines through.

International Record Review
Kvapil is considered the finest exponent of Czech piano music. A performer with such a specialized repertoire is often unfairly 'tagged' with the erroneous reputation of not playing anything else, and Kvapil's present release of three Beethoven piano sonatas (MC 147) will certainly correct that idea.

Gramophone
Sensitive performances, which touch delicately on the emotions lying beneath.
