Product Description

Product Description

This set brings together Beethovens complete piano sonatas, recorded live by François-Frédéric Guy during the concerts he gave at the Arsenal in Metz, France.
It bears witness to François-Frédéric Guys impressive maturity in face of a monumental cycle, his generosity and great musical integrity. He sheds fascinating light on this cycle, of course recorded many times but here approached with an élan and spontaneity unique to concerts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven of the first rank 23 Dec 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
With so many recordings of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas one might well ask oneself, 'why do I need yet another'? Well, for two reasons; 1) the recordings are 'live' (from the Arsenal de Metz between December 2009 and April 2011) and with 'live' this is exactly what you get - a pianist at the top of his game in front of a gratifyingly attentive audience without the interventions of a producer and with all the attendant tensions, flights of inspiration and frisson. Nothing from the sterility of the recording studio where every wrong note and pianistic indiscretion is consigned to the trash bin can replicate these conditions. Risks aplenty for sure but if the artist is not prepared to risk a wrong note then the right ones have the habit of sounding unconvincing; 'safety last' in Artur Schnabel's immortal words! 2) the pianist is Francoise-frederic Guy whose impressive credentials were established a long while ago with one of the finest 'Hammerklaviers' ever set down. He displays an astonishing accuracy throughout these 32 sonatas coupled with a clear-sighted view of what this music is 'about'- trenchant technique allied to a sophisticated and compelling musicianship. And there is a third reason - where else could you have so much for so little (£22)?! Hesitate not (and, in truth one can never have too many recordings of this repertoire....)

5.0 out of 5 stars great value and performance 31 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Guy is a fine pianist, and his performance of these sonatas cannot be faulted. His technique is formidable, and the performance is Beethoven speaking through Guy, rather than Guy imposing his will on Beethoven. I've many versions of the sonatas, but am very happy to add these to the collection. And at £22 for nine cds, you will not find a better bargain. Buy while stocks last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware of packaging problems 3 Dec 2013
By D. Altschuler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 9 CD box gathers 3 earlier 3 CD boxes. All are praised highly for performance and recording quality so I will not go into those issues.
However, ZigZag sent out a promise (repeated at Amazon.com and Presto in the UK) that this box includes a video of Guy performing 3 Beethoven sonatas. I have two copies of this box here; THERE IS NO VIDEO and it is not promised anywhere on this product.

You should also know that the booklet has a track list (full of timing errors) and all the artsy-fartsy whimsical photos of the pianist from the 3 earlier releases. But all text/descriptions about the sonatas from those releases have disappeared.

Lastly, and of least importance, it is interesting how ZigZag can engineer such fine recordings, yet get every single CD timing total drastically wrong. I mean errors of 2 to 10 minutes, no exceptions; never mind individual track timing errors. Were they drunk?

That said, as alluded to above, these are fine, fun, well recorded performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Promise of complimentary DVD unfulfilled 10 Dec 2013
By Ronald J. Kaye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I experienced the same issue of a lack of the promised DVD with this set. Someone at Zig Zag has made an error here, or a promise they couldn't keep. Amazon should change their description if it is not accurate.
