Notes and Editorial Reviews

Maurizio Pollini continues to complete his cycle of recordings of all of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas. This is the second to last disc before Pollini completes the Beethoven Sonatas Cycle. One of the greatest pianists of our time presents his own unique and individual survey of giants of the piano repertoire. Recorded at the KKL Luzern and the Herkulessaal (Residence) in Munich. A special album from a special pianist – and one with appeal beyond the world of piano aficionados. Maurizio Pollini is one of Deutsche Grammophon’s icons, having been exclusively with the company for over four decades.
