I must confess that Pires was not an artist I was that familiar with so I took the chance to purchase this box set of her DG recordings and for the most part I am more than satisfied that I did. Her playing is both insightful and brilliant. She has a wonderful sense of the dance rhythms in Bach and of the ethereal, dreaming beauty of Chopin. The disc of Beethoven sonatas is a particular favourite of mine and bears repeated listening as she has a wonderful way of shading the music. A piece like the Moonlight sonata, because it is so familiar, can seem passé. But Pires imbues it with such a sensitive touch that it is like hearing it for the first time. On the downside some of the tempos she adopts can, on occasion, seem wilful. This is true mostly in her set of Mozart's piano sonatas where, in comparison to Uchida, she can at times be slightly "mannered. The finale to the Alla Turca is so slow to my ears it's like the notes are wearing hob-nail boots. Yet some of the Mozart sonatas (the early ones and the later ones) are played with unbelievable beauty and pianism. A few of the Chopin Waltzes are played like Nocturnes and a few of the Nocturnes are played like waltzes. Yet even so she always sounds spontaneous. I don't think she could be forced even if she tried. Her Schubert recordings, however, are peerless and I defy anyone not to melt at her version of D960. I deeply admire her recording of the Imprompus which have made me realise how much I love them. Her Schumann and Brahms are also wonderful and played with an intuitive ear for its poetry and romantic sensibilities. The booklet is inadequate however which is a shame.

So all I all I am very glad to have made my acquaintance with this box set. Highly recommended.

I found Maria Joao Pires through her recordings of Schubert's piano works, included here, and love her transcendental approach - she seems to be very spiritual in her approach and brought out nuances of the music that I had not understood before. The Chopin nocturnes are similar in quality. These are all beautiful recordings and have a more sensual touch than many other artists' interpretations - and have pride of place on my CD shelves !

This is a must have repertoire! All the important romantic masterpieces of the solo piano span are brought together in one box, and played in a lively manner, with of course the beste recording techniques that we know from DGG.

(In German)

Mozart und Beethoven, Schubert und Chopin, etwas Schumann und Brahms bilden die Pfeiler. Äusserlich schlicht spielt sie, im Inneren aber voller Leben, voller Phantasie, mit Sinn für Kantilene und weite Klangräume: poetisch eben und hochmusikalisch . . . Beethoven begegnet sie nicht nur in der lyrischen E-Dur-Sonate op. 109, die sie als ein grosses Geheimnis schimmern lässt, sondern auch in der heftigen "Pathétique"; die Wildheit im "Allegro" des Kopfsatzes zeigt sie weniger durch Lautstärke oder Temperament als durch Tempogestaltung und Artikulation. Bisweilen macht es den Eindruck, sie lasse den Steinway wie ein Hammerklavier klingen, allerdings eines, das zu besonderer Kantabilität in der Lage ist. Schuberts große B-Dur-Sonate D 960 kommt bei ihr ganz aus der Ferne . . . [und lässt] das Maß ihrer Anschlagskunst erkennen. Ganz in ihrem Element ist Maria Joao Pires bei den "Impromptus" von Schubert: mit seidenen Bässen, mit hingetupften Akkordbrechungen. Und bei Chopin, zumal seinen "Nocturnes".

Peter Hagmann, Neue Zürcher Zeitung / 23. July 2014

I could've bought DG Collector's Edition of her Mozart Piano Sonatas. But I decided to purchase this complete set as I'd like to hear her other performances. I have to say the whole set is wonderful. I could not tell whether I love her play or Mozart's music too much but I will definitely recommend her Mozart and Bach. Since I have heard too many recordings of Beethoven and Chopin, I do not believe her performance is more outstanding than others.
