⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Recording Review from BBC Music Magazine for Beethoven Plus, Vol. 2!
“It’s an elegant idea, and it has paid off. … aside from being very winning in its own right, Kurt Schwertsik’s Unterwegs nach Heiligenstadt prepared the way for Op. 30 No. 1 so effectively that I genuinely found myself listening to the Beethoven with new ears. Matthew Taylor’s Tarantella Furiosa emerges compellingly… David Matthews’s Sonatina… [is] so rich, touching and tuneful… [Beethoven’s] wonderful Op. 96 finds a delicate balance between depth and playfulness that’s hard to beat among contemporary versions, and the rapport between the players is clear right from the start. For live recordings, the sound quality is outstanding.”—Stephen Johnson, BBC Music Magazine
