Notes & Reviews:

OehmsClassics presents volume 10 of the complete Beethoven sonata cycle. In 1976, Michael Korstick traveled to the United States to study at Julliard. He became known as "Dr. Beethoven" and ever since, experts have agreed that Michael Korstick is one of the most important German pianists of our time. The first volume of this series won the "Discovery of the Year" award given by German record critic, Joachim Emperor. Volumes 2 and 4 won this award as well as the MIDEM classical award.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Also included are the very brief pieces Wo0 60 and 61 (each less than a minute). The first was written in 1818 for a female acquaintance of the composer, and the second is from three years later. They are fascinating snippets from the composer's hand, and it is good to have them here.
