Notes & Reviews:

Steven Osborne's standing as one of the great pianists of his generation was publically affirmed in 2013 with two major awards: The Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year and his second Gramophone Award, this time in the Instrumental category for his recording of Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition and solo works by Prokofiev. Previous awards include a 2009 Gramophone Award for his recording of Britten's works for piano and orchestra, as well as first prize at both the Naumburg International Competition (New York) and Clara Haskil Competition.

Osborne has repeatedly proved himself a Beethovenian of profound insight. In these three late Piano Sonatas Op.90, Op.101 and the monumental 'Hammerklavier' Op.106, he gives performances of stunning impact and lasting enjoyment.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2016
Fine performances, but I can't imagine that anyone will want to listen to anything for sometime after this colossal Hammerklavier.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
[This] is about the big picture, objectivity and a powerful kinaesthesia that could propel rockets into space... the result is a virtuoso apotheosis as brilliant as molten iron from a blast furnace.

The Guardian, 6th October 2016
The Scottish pianist plays with an authority built on intelligent, very human musicianship: his accounts of these three late-period Beethoven sonatas are hugely personal but are never about him.
