Notes & Reviews:

Following the critically praised release of the late and then the middle Beethoven piano sonatas, Stewart Goodyear recorded the rest of the 32 sonatas, and the complete set is now available as a 10-CD box set.

Philadelphia Inquirer
With the release in 2010 of Beethoven: The Late Sonatas (CDs 9 & 10 of this set), Canadian piano virtuoso Stewart Goodyear was recognized as one of the world's great interpreters of these monumental works: "With Beethoven's last five sonatas, he leaps the summit of the piano repertoire with complete success. Performances have a thrilling energy, mania for details, and brim with interpretive ideas that seem to leap out of the speakers in three dimensions. Is he in the rarefied league of Maurizio Pollini? Maybe. Time will tell.

Gramophone
Stewart Goodyear has a stylish, vitally communicative way with Beethoven. A riveting release on every level.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Stewart Goodyear (piano).

Recording information: Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto.
