In occasion of Beethoven's bicentennial, Badura Skoda decided to undertake the integral sonatas. Playing them on a Bossendorfer Imperial, his project ranged over three years (1969-1972).

In virtue of his multiple international compromises, he achieved with this set something truly remarkable; one of the most important musical documents about Beethoven piano music.

To make a whole account around the significance of the set would exceed these brief lines. The Sonatas Op. 31 No.1 and No. 2, his flaming performance of Appassionata, Waldstein, Op. 7, the 28th. the three last ones op. 109, 110 and 111 Patetique, The Op 1, Les adieux are performed with astounding vitality, steeled fingering, winged inspiration, sheer rapport and radiant splendor are some of the epithets I may cite to encourage you my respected reader to acquire this monumental set.

Believe me, since the immediate release of this transcendental set I didn't blink and I requested it. And the final outcome in what concerns the spiritual delight and Dionysian commitment will justify by far his acquisition.

I wouldn't hesitate to qualify this album as one of the five best recordings of that year.

Finally, you would never forget that in 1978 Badura-Skoda received deservedly the Bossendorfer ring, an honor that until that moment had been conceded it to another illustrious artist of the instrument. Wilhelm Backhaus.

Don't miss it. You have not excuse. It will always reward you.
