Notes & Reviews:

This double-CD release, the second volume in pianist Paavali Jumppanen's ongoing recording cycle of the Beethoven piano sonatas, contains the three early Op. 10 sonatas (1798) and the three sonatas written between 1804 - 06 (Opp. 53 (Waldstein), 54 & 57 (Appassionata)), which include two of the master's most popular piano works. Mr. Jumppanen is an internationally esteemed pianist, and versatile performer; his vast repertoire spanning Bach to the Avant-garde. His first Beethoven installment received the 'Choc' Award from the French music magazine Classica, among other honors.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
I praised Jumppanen's authoritative Hammerklavier in my July/August 2014 review of another of his Beethoven discs and stated that his complete Beethoven sonata series was one to watch. His Appassionata combines a straightforward reading with rich nuance. The Op. 10 sonatas, especially the bright, sparkling Sonata 6, have plenty of the humor I noted in his approach to early Beethoven. The first movement of his Waldstein is a delight: crisp and clean. While I find Goode's rendering of the final movement more sensitive to Beethoven's lyricism, Jumppanen's sheer speed in the prestissimo coda of the work is both surprising and impressive. This is a refreshing effort.
