Notes & Reviews:

Having scaled the heights of J.S. Bach's "48," The Well-Tempered Clavier (AVR 2299), as well as Bach's Goldberg Variations (AVR 2235) and Mozart's Piano Sonatas (AVR 2209), Daniel-Ben Pienaar turns to arguably the most revered body of works in the piano repertory, Beethoven's "32." Training his sharp intellect and formidable technique on this touchstone of classical canons, Pienaar's interpretations are altogether as stimulating as they are engaging.

BBC Music Magazine
Pienaar has a technique at once athletic and graceful ... fresh, spontaneous, original readings that shed new light on the keyboard player's Bible.
