Notes and Editorial Reviews

Murray Perahia's interpretations of Beethoven sonatas, collected in a new 5-CD box set, have been compared to viewing a famous painting after its been cleaned and restored (ClassicsToday.com). Gramophone's reviewer found them "stimulating and fresh, the sense of an invigorating energy being released in the act of performance comes across strongly, and I'm sure Beethoven would have loved it. It's all done with such ease and naturalness of expression". Penguin Guide wrote that "Perahia is as authoritative and sensitive an interpreter of Beethoven as he is of Mozart. All these readings have the blend of authority, finesse and poetry that distinguishes this great artist at his best."
