Forget the idiocy about the packaging. That's hopefully not why you buy a CD. Focus instead on this delightful rendering of Beethoven by one of the world's most gifted pianists. In particular, Mr. Perahia's interpretation of the "Pastorale" is performed with an effortless charm and lyricism that immediately transports the listener into the countryside. The performance is also lightly infused with subtle warmth and humor befitting a sojourn in the country. The entire CD is sure to please.

Perahia does a masterful turn in the Pastorale sonata, arguably the focal point of this release, and also in the Sonata No. 10, which has always been one of my favorites as well. One other reviewer called the tone of the album a bit too refined, and I don't know that I'd argue with that, though it seems to me that that's perhaps more a criticism of the program itself rather than Perahia's playing -- all four sonatas on this album are on the prim side, after all. If you want more convulsive Beethoven keyboard playing, try other works that are that way to begin with. For refined Beethoven, this is very good stuff indeed.

The duly famous living pianist Murray Perahia has taken his time with the Beethoven sonatas. This is the latest volume, number five? We have so far gotten stellar readings of the early three Opus 2 sonatas, plus sonatas 7, 8, 17, 18, 23, 26, 28 ... spread across four previous, separately released red book CD discs. Now we are able to add four more to the growing list of completed recordings. Not quite halfway through the famous 32 sonatas, then.

This CD starts off with 12, then goes to 9,10, and 15. I confess I don't quite get the shifted order, not that it makes that much difference; but as piano student I got comfortable with just taking the piano sonatas in sequence. If I really continue to be bothered, I can re-record a CDR in the serial sequence for home play.

The glorious thirty-two piano sonatas are a set, and not at all a set, all at the same time. One of the most fascinating things about following Beethoven is that followers may get involved in the challenge and fascination of his musical development and growth and deepening over the years of his singular, pivotal creative life. Thank goodness the composer was so prolific. We can follow amazing and wonderful paths of change in the symphonies, in the piano sonatas, in the string quartets, and to a lesser extent in the five piano concertos or the violin sonatas or the cello sonatas. Plenty of other works in the composer's catalog mark additional high peaks and enhanced musical topographies of sheer western classical discovery. Single works like the violin concerto, the Missa Solemnis, Diabelli Variations, Fidelio, the Triple Concerto - further light up the heart and mind, provided we can pay decent attention to so much treasure.

Murray Perahia performs here some Beethoven sonatas in a relatively recent recording (2008). Following his unimpeachable insight and versatile musicianship, Perahia gets an outstanding achievement. In his stunning recital at Romanian Atheneum in Bucharest during the XVIIIth edition of the George Enescu International Festival 2007, Murray Perahia included the wonderful "Pastoral" sonata in the program. I cherished that special moment of great music and I am delighted now to remember - by means of this recording - his marvellous approach to Beethoven's music. Don't hesitate to get this CD! You'll be rewarded by superb accounts of great music.
