Following his excellent Haydn and Mozart fortepiano recordings for BIS, Ronald Brautigam turns his attention to Beethoven's complete piano music. The playing is riveting. The singular timbral qualities of Brautigam's instrument (a McNulty fortepiano based on an 1819 Conrad Graf model) enhance Brautigam's interpretive revelations. My original rating for this release was "wow!", which translates into "10/10". Don't miss it.

These are among the finest modern recordings of Beethoven's Cello Sonatas. The two players are well matched, as they should be in this music, which is just as demanding for the pianist as for the cellist, if not more so.

Following on the critical success of her brilliant recording of Bach s Sonatas and Partitas, this new CD of Beethoven sonatas sees Viktoria Mullova partnered with rising-star fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout. For this disc, Mullova plays with her usual grace and fire on gut strings and using on a classical period bow, but is never a slave to musicological correctness. Bezuidenhout demonstrates his staggering virtuosity on the 1822 Walter fortepiano chosen for this recording. Both of these fantastic performers bring out every nuance of Beethoven s sonatas.

Beethoven: Sonatas For Piano And Violin / Oistrakh, Oborin
Chamber | 4CD | EAC, ape, img+cue, logs | covers | 974 MB
2001 Philips | Stereo | ADD

With the return of these stereo recordings by David Oistrakh and Lev Oborin (made in Paris in 1962), many collectors will find an automatic first choice. This new Philips set presents these accounts in fine digital transfers and has the benefit of having all 10 sonatas placed sequentially across four CDs. The performances are exceptionally fine, sometimes not as dramatic as Schneiderhan's (DG), it's true, but always intensely musical and natural… What you'll find here is a duo that devotes minute attentiveness to every passing detail, along the way conveying a powerful feeling of joyfulness and discovery. This is essential listening, and not just for violin devotees: this set belongs in everyone's collection!

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is starting a complete, chronological survey of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, to run parallel with his complete Haydn sonatas series. This first box set covers the sonatas composed in the 1790s. Two further volumes, of middle and late sonatas respectively, will follow in 2013 and 2014. Each three-disc box set in the series will be available as the price of two CDs. In a recent cover feature in International Piano, Michael Church spoke with the pianist about the new project and reported: ‘For Bavouzet, the particular pleasure of coming to Beethoven after Haydn lies in the fact that although their basic harmonic language is roughly the same, in Beethoven’s scores the dynamics are clearly indicated, especially where they seem completely independent of the music’s so-called natural harmonic tensions.’ Bavouzet added: ‘The accents are in exactly the wrong place, and that’s what creates his music’s excitement. I am so happy to have these two streams of my work running side by side for the next few years.’

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s fascinating journey through Beethoven’s complete sonatas now comes to an end with this third volume. The prodigious exploration reaches its culmination in this three-disc set – sold for the price of 2 CDs as were its two predecessors – featuring the most mature and exploratory of Beethoven’s sonatas, including the heroic, two-movement ‘Appassionata’. Bavouzet’s distinguished interpretations reveal not only the technical virtuosity but also the emotional power of these contrasted works. With his characteristically fresh and energetic, yet expressive and profound approach, Bavouzet captures a Beethoven drawing the contours of romantic keyboard textures that would become the staple of the next generation. This project will also resonate on the concert platform, as a series of recitals will take it to the most significant venues around the world.
