"The first release of the cycle (Pristine Audio PAKM 082) includes Sonatas 1-7, and what a wonder it is. Kempff’s deft, but tasteful use of the pedal is fully in evidence, as is a warm, singing tone to the piano. Technically, of course, they are beyond reproach, but the performances are fully engaging emotionally as well ... Judging by Volume One, this cycle by Kempff goes right to the top of the heap." - Tim Snider, WTJU FM, August 2020
This second volume of the Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas by Wilhelm Kempff takes us from No. 8, 'Pathétique' to No. 15, 'Pastoral', via the 'Fantasia' and 'Moonlight' sonatas and more. Sounding incredibly good in these new XR remasters, this is a series not to be missed - and one which demands a complete reassessment of these seminal recordings.
