This new 10-CD box set of the compete Beethoven sonatas from pianist Stewart Goodyear showcases the pianist's mastery of this repertoire. Gramophone on the final sonatas that are part of this set: "Stewart Goodyear's stylish, vitally communicative way with late Beethoven... manages to leap through the loudspeakers and grab the listener by the scruff. His playing abounds in linear awareness, spontaneous inflections of phrase that never sound the least bit mannered, and a kind of kinetic response to the composer's combative, hair-trigger dynamic contrasts... a riveting release on every level."
The featured track here is the first movement - "Adagio Sostenuto" - of Beethoven's Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor, Op. 27 - the "Moonlight".
Pianist Stewart Goodyear is known for imagination, a graceful, elegant style and exquisite technique.
