Maurizio Pollini continues to complete his cycle of recordings of all of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas. This is the second to last disc before Pollini completes the Beethoven Sonatas Cycle.

One of the greatest pianists of our time presents his own unique and individual survey of giants of the piano repertoire.

Recorded at the KKL Luzern and the Herkulessaal (Residence) in Munich.

A special album from a special pianist – and one with appeal beyond the world of piano aficionados.

Maurizio Pollini is one of Deutsche Grammophon’s icons, having been exclusively with the company for over four decades.

“a curious mix of the magisterial and the severe…But sometimes the overbearing element can vanish altogether, as it does in Pollini's delicate, quicksilver account of the first of the Op 14 pair…No one who has followed this cycle will think twice about hearing this latest batch of performances” (The Guardian)

“In Beethoven Op. 7 Sonata, Maurizio Pollini pounces on the composer's Allegro molto e con brio directive with joyful momentum…the pianist's superb articulation of the G major's central Andante's detached chords and cross-rhythmic accentuation the music's proximity to Haydn” (Gramophone Magazine)

“Needless to say, there's some dazzling pianism on display but Pollini's fondness for lightning-quick tempos all to often denies the music breathing space.” (BBC Music Magazine)

“The hallmarks of Pollini's musical and pianistic style are everywhere in evidence here: his powerful technique, the elegance and delicacy of his fingerwork even when the music is dramatic or forceful” (International Record Review)
