Notes & Reviews:

"Wehr's Beethoven will be my reference series for Beethoven's great contribution to piano repertoire. The more I listen to Wehr, the more I shy away from the term "interpretation". Many pianists can be said to "interpret" these masterpieces. Wehr plays them scrupulously as written, interjecting little else except those minuscule, but critical, gradations in touch and tempo that produce a musical line. I can't imagine that Beethoven himself could want anything more-or less. Now, all I have to do is wait for the final installment. The late sonatas will complete this journey and should fully establish David Allen Wehr as one of America's top pianists." -ARG
