Pollini's performances of Beethoven's last five piano sonatas have assumed almost legendary status, and this reissue at midprice in improved sound ought to win them many new friends. Sometimes considered a cold interpreter, Pollini here pays scrupulous attention to Beethoven's instructions, an attention that never gets in the way of sincere expression. There's a lot to be said for approaching this music with a maximum of clarity and simplicity, and a minimum of Romantic panting and heaving. In fact, Beethoven's instructions are so detailed, and the music itself is often so elaborately developed, that it's all most pianists can do to play it as he wrote it. Pollini does that, and much more. –David Hurwitz

Maurizio Pollini: Beethoven, Mozart & Brahms Piano Concertos [2xDVD9]

Audio: PCM Stereo | DTS 5.1 | Relesase: November 15, 2005 | Publisher: Deutsche Grammophon

Maurizio Pollini's late 1970s film recordings of Beethoven Piano Concertos 3 and 5; Mozart Piano Concertos 19 and 23; and Brahms Piano Concerto 2 have it all: great pianism, beautiful playing by the Vienna Philharmonic, magnificent conducting by Karl Bohm (Beethoven, Mozart) and Claudio Abbado (Brahms), all adding up to one thing: a beautiful experience. These DVDs are a feast for the ears: great audio, and the eyes: great video. The 1970s Unitel films used in this DG release have held up very well in the vaults: there are no glitches or imperfections in the picture. The camera work is also excellent, and serves the music being performed.
There is no audience, and the recording venue: Vienna's Musikvereien, has wonderful acoustics - one of the best concert halls in the civilized world. It was worth alot to me to see Karl Bohm smile at Maurizio Pollini at the beginning of I, of Mozart's Piano Concerto 19 with it's humorous, scherzo like theme which begins the concerto. Highly recommended!

Beethoven - Sonatas - Brautigam  Music

Beethoven - Sonatas - Brautigam

Ludwig van Beethoven - The Piano Sonatas (Brautigam)
Bis | 2005/2010 | 8 CD | MP3 192 Kbps | 8 RAR | 932Mb
Lame encoded | Covers | Tracks | Fserve, Fsonic, HotF

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.

Antti Siirala’s international career was launched when he won first prize in the 10th Vienna Beethoven competition, and was the youngest contestant.

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.

Classical | Label: Onyx Classics ONYX4050

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.
