Notes & Reviews:

"The bywords here are subtlety and drama- both very important adjuncts to Beethoven's sound world. I have seldom heard such attention paid to follow-through of dynamics, general balance between instruments, and a willingness to pile on the volume come what may-or to whisper when it is called for. The variety of tonal expression on the part of both artists is remarkable, and so is the subtle use of rubato. I only wish they had had time to take the second repeat in the G-minor Sonata. They could have found something fresh to say, I m sure. But if you re going to do the sonatas in chronological order without leavening them with the three early sets of variations, you end up with a long program like this one, and no development-recap repeats need apply. As it stands, this is a remarkable disc. The recorded sound is half of the attraction. The sound of the instruments is unusually realistic and exciting. I only wish that the volume had not been dropped slightly for the A-major Sonata. I look forward to a further installment." -ARG
