4.0 out of 5 stars Superb music making but......beware, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is exceptional music making but beware this is not all a new release.
According to the recording dates the first disk containing D784 and D958 is new (2013) but the second disk containing the other two sonatas is a reissue of the 2002 recording itself re-issued in 2012.
All that has been written about that earlier recording remains true but this is not a new recording resulting from Lewis' recent re-exploration of this music. The Gramophone review on the back cover gives the game away (Oct 2012) and the small print confirms it
If you don't have that earlier disk get this - it is exceptional. If you do, just be aware of the duplication.
I can't see this mentioned anywhere even on the HM site so no shame on Amazon.
5 star for the performance and recording but a star deducted for the disappointment - I didn't have the earlier disk so it was easy for me.
