Beethoven’s three final sonatas constitute one of music’s great spiritual journeys, one which only a very few pianists are qualified to undertake. Steven Osborne, whose Beethoven has been widely acclaimed, need fear no comparisons.
From the first note, Osborne’s kinship with the composer is everywhere apparent and he conveys the vast contrasts of the last three sonatas unerringly...What is particularly winning about this new set is the way Osborne occupies the very different world of each sonata with equal conviction...Osborne has made many outstanding recordings but this is certainly among his finest. A magnificent achievement. Gramophone
A stunning release, Osborne’s readings will, beyond doubt, move you. MusicWeb
