Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has specialized in Baroque and Classical music, and her Beethoven is about as delicate as some might expect. But there's a difference between applying delicacy to works that are not conventionally played that way, and applying it to already delicate works. There are two of each here. Hewitt runs counter to type in the early Piano Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 2/2, and Piano Sonata No. 5 in C minor, Op. 10/1. In the Op. 10 work, perhaps a preparatory essay for the tumultuous "Pathétique" sonata that followed in the same key, Hewitt will be underpowered for many. But all is redeemed in the gentler pair, the Piano Sonata No. 24 in F sharp major, Op. 78, and Piano Sonata No. 31 in A major, Op. 110. Hewitt takes moderate tempi in these, infusing a sense of spontaneity into the brief, tightly constructed Op. 78 and opening up the fugal counterpoint in the Op. 110 finale. Hewitt's Bachian training really applies in this work, whose first movement is also particularly raptly, almost mystically done. It's hard to offer a general judgment on this set, but for those buying online, in pieces, know that the last two selections are must-haves.

Since his victory in the Reine Elisabeth Competition in Belgium in 1992, at the age of 22, Braley has allowed himself plenty of time for reflection, and his career… has been, in his own image, refined and demanding.

Label: Decca Records | Release Year: 2016

The Pianist Davide Milan Cabassi starts a recording path that will see him in the recording of four cd entirely dedicated to sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven. The first of this series, recently published, contains the sonatas op. 10 and the Pathetique Op. 13. For the truth Cabassi had already recorded some sonatas of Beethoven (op. 110 and the two Op. 27), but it is now a more full-bodied and structured project to leave testimony of an author who is congenial, and which has also Concerts repertoire. Just in relation to the new record release takes place our meeting.

Artemis Quartet is maybe the most accomplished quartet of the past ten years, in my opinion much more perfect than, say the Prazak. They are making a recording of Beethoven complete cycle which will be, for sure, a new reference for the decade.

With this programme of four sonatas, the young pianist Rémi Géniet presents a highly judicious selection that enables listeners to enter the exceptional world of Beethoven’s thirty-two piano sonatas, which Hans von Bülow described as the ‘New Testament’ for pianists, the ‘Old Testament’ being Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavie.

Every man's death diminishes us all, but the death of a man so close to completing his greatest achievement and the summation of his life's work diminishes us all greatly – very, very greatly. When Emil Gilels died in 1985, he had completed recordings of most but not all of Beethoven's piano sonatas, released here in a nine-disc set. What's here is unimaginably good: superlative recordings of 27 of the 32 canonical sonatas, including the "Pathétique," "Moonlight," "Waldstein," "Appassionata," "Les Adieux," and the majestic "Hammerklavier," plus the two early "Electoral" Sonatas and the mighty Eroica Variations. What's missing is unimaginably priceless: five of the canonical sonatas, including the first and – horror vacui – the last. But still, for what there is, we must be grateful. Beyond all argument one of the great pianists of the twentieth century, Gilels the Soviet super virtuoso had slowly mellowed and ripened over his long career, and when he began recording the sonatas in 1972, his interpretations had matured and deepened while his superlative technique remained gloriously intact straight through to the last recordings of his final year.

Angela Hewitt has been much praised in her earlier recordings of Beethoven’s piano sonatas—displaying ‘exquisite taste’—and now turns her ‘uncluttered clarity of thought and inspired structural pacing’ to four more works spanning the composer’s career. As ever, Angela’s accompanying notes provide fascinating insights into both the music and her performances.
