Notes and Editorial Reviews

Murray Perahia’s blend of gentle wit, intelligence, humanity and meticulous attention to detail make this disc a joy. Perahia takes the F minor Sonata, often mangled by students in their first Beethovenian attempts, as seriously as it deserves; whether in its finale’s whirlwind prestissimo or in No. 2’s chromatic upward shifts or the glittering double-thirds of No. 3’s opening, these interpretations are gripping, songful and very rewarding.
