Notes & Reviews:

"Zander has come to believe that Beethoven, though deaf, probably knew exactly what he was doing when he put very fast (to us) metronome markings on his music. The extra disc is liberally sprinkled with musical examples from older recordings and makes Zander's case well, without anger or venom...I can report that these lickety-split performances are very convincing...The playing is musically shaped and vigorous without sounding too aggressive..." -Althouse, ARG
