Notes & Reviews:
For the first time in its history, a complete Beethoven sonata cycle was performed at the Salzburg Festival by none other than the world-renowned and influential Beethoven expert and pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. With more than 45 performances of the Beethoven sonata cycle in concert halls all over the world "Buchbinder has set new standards in the interpretation of Beethoven's works" (Bayerischer Rundfunk). Buchbinder's performance is that of "a real master, effortlessly changing between lightning fast, technically challenging moments and tender lyrical passages. Where others can pride themselves in getting through without any accidents, Buchbinder is a poet, precise in every arpeggio, touching every keystroke" (Kurier). This recording includes two concerts which feature sonatas 3, 6, 7, 16, 19, 24, 26, 28, and 29.Notes & Reviews:
