Another tour de force by the Master of the German and Austrian classics who has inspired legions of not only young pianists, but those interested in the art of chamber music, thanks to his classes at Curtis and summers at Marlboro. We all owe him, the High Priest of Chamber Music, in addition to a virtuoso in Bafch, Beethoven and Brahms concertos--not to mention Mozart and Busoni.
basso di cornetto
How is it that we come to sense that a musician has opened a clear conduit to the soul of the composer? Not technical mastery alone, certainly. Not merely our having heard the same piece played wonderfully, but never quite so wonderfully, by others. Whatever the mechanism, the result in this case is not only the near-palpable presence of Beethoven, but the very strong feeling that he has personally blessed the performer, the performance and the moment.
Performance is great, as expected. Audio quality of this disk is not great. Recorded at too low a level produces hiss when volume turned up. And I can hear what sounds like cross tracking in the quiet sections like the master tape was bad then the CDs were pressed from the master.
