Notes & Reviews:

"If the first volume (superbly recorded and annotated by ECM) is anything to go by, this Beethoven cycle will not only provoke and illuminate but give the lie to those who wonder if there is room for yet another." Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone

The Independent - Rob Cowan
Great Beethoven playing gives off shock waves, and the three Op 10 sonatas are rich in shock potential. András Schiff's new recording - part of his ongoing sonata cycle - suggests mischievous delight in their quirks and idiosyncrasies... Schiff focuses to perfection the sudden flurries, pregnant pauses, rattled-off chords, mock formalities. He makes sure never to rush, and cues some powerful crescendos. His account of the Pathétique Sonata combines bravura with genuine gravitas.
