5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely flawless performance of Beethoven's works., 24 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Beethoven: Favourite Piano Sonatas (8, 14, 15, 17, 21, 23 & 26) (Audio CD)
The 14th, 'Moonlight', is sublime - the many rubatos and tantalisingly furious passages in the 3rd movement 'Presto Agitato' are just some of the features that makes this CD an unmissable bargain. A top performance from the keyboard master: Vladimir Ashkenazy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashkenazy's interpretations are unmissable, 27 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Beethoven: Favourite Piano Sonatas (8, 14, 15, 17, 21, 23 & 26) (Audio CD)
Recorded in excellent late analogue sound, Askenazy's interpretations of this collection of "named" sonatas shed new light on these pieces. Frequently whilst listening to this collection I have caught myself noting that what I am hearing is very different from other, more traditional, interpretations and yet is equally valid and, for me, more listenable and more involving. Maybe not for anyone who thinks that there should only be one way to play Beethoven, for the rest of us this is a gem of a set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashkenazy at his best, 26 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Beethoven: Favourite Piano Sonatas (8, 14, 15, 17, 21, 23 & 26) (Audio CD)
Very familiar Beethoven Sonatas performed with panache, sensitivity and great skill.
Hard to better this album and very rewarding to listen to.

Beethoven is my Savior of the day. Vladimir Ashkenazy is its Messenger. My joy of classical music never ends since I got the CDs promptly delivered.
