Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's Sonatas for Fortepiano and Cello or Horn clearly demonstrate the connection of the transition from Classicism to Romanticism - they were composed throughout his entire creative career and tell a continuous story, a musical and historical testament, of maturity and change. The three sonatas on this CD were created in three different phases - the young, the struggling and the mature Beethoven in an intense and lucid performance.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
But the real star of this show is the pianist. She has fingers that don't miss a note while playing with amazing energy and clarity. These are some of the most exciting Beethoven sonata recordings I have heard, and Fossheim is the one with the concepts and the technique to bring them off. Go for it!
