Ronald Brautigam’s performance on the previous volume in this series was described in the International Record Review as ‘remarkably full-blooded and forceful playing, pushing the instrument to its limits yet always securing a rich and well-rounded tone’. With the present disc, consisting of sonatas from Beethoven’s middle period, Brautigam continues his survey of Beethoven’s piano music on a new instrument, a copy of a Graf 1819 fortepiano, which corresponds to the greater demands in terms of power and dynamics made by works such as the Waldstein and the Appassionata. Beethoven’s middle period began shortly after a personal crisis brought on by the composer’s encroaching deafness, and during it he began to push the borders between free expression and strict form to an even greater extent than previously. In their glowing reviews of previous volumes, many critics have commented precisely on Ronald Brautigam’s ability to bring out the radical aspects of the works. According to the reviewer in The Times, ‘Beethoven the revolutionary comes closer than ever in Brautigam’s fiery interpretations’.


FonoForum 11 / 08: "Es ist paradox, aber Brautigams "historischer" Beethoven klingt in vielem moderner als die meisten Steinway-Interpreten von heute. Im DSD-Mehrkanalmodus wird der besondere silbrig glänzende Klangcharakter des Instruments in einer angenehmen Halbdistanz erlebbar und ebenso die fein facettierte Anschlagskultur eines ungewöhnlichen Pianisten, dessen "Historismus" ohne jeden Zweifel in die Zukunft gerichtet ist."
