Notes & Reviews:

Ludwig van Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas form an unparalleled canon, remaining one of the greatest and most rewarding challenges for pianists to this day. These three sonatas represent Beethoven's Early, Middle and Late periods but are united in the key of C - minor, for the dramatic and stormy intensity of mood in the Pathtique, and major for the radiant and poetic Waldstein sonata. In his sonata Op. 111 the cycle is completed with music of utmost dramatic tension and the deepest spirituality.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
The sustained beauty of the pianism... commands attention.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
[Giltburg] is a musical and thoughtful player, and his account of Beethoven's last sonata, Op. 111, in particular is highly accomplished, the opening movement delivered with all the drama and intensity it calls for, and the valedictory variation finale conveying an air of luminous warmth.
