Beethoven reviewed in Gramophone
Happy with the review in Gramophone – even though it goes on and on about the pianist 😉
‘They swing forwards enthusiastically in the scherzos of Opp 24 and 96 but the hearts of these readings are in the slower, more intimate music: the stillness that spreads across the centre of the finale of Op 96 is profound, and the dialogue that launches that particular sonata seems to emerge out of nowhere. This is deeply unshowy Beethoven but it’s intensely sincere and it sounds entirely new. Try it.’
Well, why don’t you – right here!
