 Not Your Average Beethoven Symphony January 15, 2013 By Margaret S. (Delmont, PA) See All My Reviews "This set is a marvel of pianistic virtuosity--plenty of Liszt, but ALL of Beethoven. Lines are crisp and clear, and it is amazing to hear so many notes at once from a single performer--absolutely nothing is missing. The dynamic range is riveting. There are a few (minor) tempo quirks, but they help to fit all the notes in. This is not refined or precious playing--this is full-bodied, flat-out, rampant Beethoven in all his symphonic glory, presented by a very accomplished pianist. I have uttered several out-loud "wows" at the conclusion of some of the selections, and I usually don't talk to my CD player." Report Abuse
