Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A very pleasurable disc of lesser known Beethoven piano works - apart from the evergreen Fur Elise - although the Minuet in G from the Six Minuets WoO 10 will be very familiar to all beginner pianists! I disagree with the previous reviewer in these pieces seeming innocuous. The bagatelles are fascinating in their own right and I enjoy the sets of dances that Beethoven wrote for Viennese balls - bread and butter Beethoven to be sure but no less enjoyable for that. The C minor works (that may have been intended as movements for the early sonatas Op. 10) are also compelling and memorable. The other volumes in the series are also worth purchasing.

4 of 9 people found the following review helpful By John Austin HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 22 Sept. 2001
Format: Audio CD
You will find four CDs in the Naxos catalogue in which Jenö Jandó plays Beethoven bagatelles. The earliest to be released features the marvellous three sets to which opus numbers were given. This CD is the first of the three others, comprising miscellaneous short piano works of Beethoven. Some bagatelles are here, including the well-known "Für Elise" which opens this collection. Once you've heard "Für Elise", you'll listen in vain for anything here with any spark or substance. Beethoven would probably turn in his Viennese grave if he knew that there was a pianist like Jenö Jandó who would devote 57 minutes to playing them to a 21st Century audience. Naxos's regular note-writer, Keith Anderson, provides a scholarly and objective essay.

Great Beethoven that you haven't heard 100 times. 14 Jun. 2002
By jg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Be it rock, pop, jazz, blues, or classical, I frequently find my favorite works of a composer in his or her's lesser known pieces--"B-sides," for lack of a better term. Such is the case here.
I love these sets of shorter works of Beethoven, of which Jeno Jando and Naxos are bringing to us over four cds. I have them all and highly recommend them all. Don't be a snob and assume that because something is not a "sonata" that's been recorded 100 times it's not worth hearing. These are great pieces in terms of composition, musicianship, interpretation, and recording quality. And they're affordable. If you enjoy piano music, get them all. You won't be disappointed.

Elegant performance, bu others better 1 Aug. 2000
By Santiago Barcon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jeno Jando the "official" piano performe of Naxos does a great job. The playing is with clear phrases and clean.
Recording is very good.
For such a performed works, Pollini and Kempf do a nicer job.
An interesting purchase, specially at the price
