Notes and Editorial Reviews

Have the opus 101 and 106 Sonats really divulged all their secrets? Great masterpieces are characterised by the infinite number of readings they can be given. Olivier Chauzu's profound exploration of the text has resulted in a performance that is deeply insightful rather than merely virtuoso and delivers a highly transparent reading of Beethoven's complex counterpoint.
