Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first all-Australian recording of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas (re-mastered), 5 piano concertos and the Diabelli Variations is a multi-award winning package.

They feature Australia's leading Beethoven interpreter, Gerard Willems, and the revolutionary Australian-designed Stuart & Sons piano. Together, they give the greatest piano music ever written a unique and authentic Australian voice.

Gerard Willems has recorded Beethoven's three 'Electoral' sonatas (composed in 1782-83), as well as 'Fantasia Sonata in D', a 25-minute work Beethoven sketched in 1792-93 but never published. - ABC Classics
