Notes & Reviews:

Maria Joao Pires's first Beethoven recording was made at a new center for the study of the arts at her Belgais Estate. With its unique package design - entirely hand-made in Portugal with ecologically-sound paper and a limited edition half-moon cork to hold the CD - the recording illuminates the guiding spirit of Pires's music-making and life philosophy. "A pianist without a trace of narcissism - among the most eloquent master-musicians of our time." -Gramophone
