Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...[Barenboim] brings two clear gains—the inclusion of the finale repeat in the Appassionata and a more flowing tempo for the first movement of the Moonlight. The Appassionata finale is if anything even more daring, even more terrifying than before, threatening to run right off the rails just before the presto, and the slow movement is now a truer andante con moto..." -- Gramophone [6/1987] "...[Barenboim] brings two clear gains—the inclusion of the finale repeat in the Appassionata and a more flowing tempo for the first movement of the Moonlight.
