Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
It's curious, but however well you think you know these sonatas, the freshness and incisiveness of Pizarro's playing somehow takes you unawares. From the almost unfeasibly grave Grave introduction to the PathTtique to the torrential outbursts in the finale of the Appassionata, Pizarro shows how well he understands Beethoven

Gramophone Magazine
An exceptional album of Beethoven from a rising young pianist - one to watch.
