About the album

The fourth instalment of Schiff’s complete Beethoven includes the sonatas opp. 26, 27 and 28 – highly accomplished works of strong individual features that were written in 1800 and 1801. Even in the famous “Moonlight”-sonata the Hungarian’s attention to detail leads to unexpected listening experiences. “Nobody in the hall will have heard this first movement like that before” wrote Peter Hagmann in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung reviewing the recital in Tonhalle Zurich where the sonatas are recorded live for ECM. “Not the kind of over-demonstrative approach which has become common these days lies at the heart of this interpretation but the consequent and courageous scrutiny of the musical text.” The booklet offers an extensive conversation between András Schiff and Martin Meyer on the repertoire and its interpretation.
