3.0 out of 5 stars Decent disc for fans of the fortepiano. August 2, 2013
By brh
Format:Audio CD
This recording is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I don't, to start, find the recording quality itself to be all that great. It's not like listening to a poor transfer of a historic performance by any means, but also not up to par with modern releases from more notable classical labels. I also don't necessarily think the performances are the best. Again, not bad, but there are better. Yet that statement must be qualified - there may be better performances, and better recordings, but I know of no other recording of 'Moonlight' on a fortepiano. Perhaps my love of the 'Moonlight' sonata is a bit cliché, but my love of the sound of a fortepiano is not, and for this reason and rarity, this disc is a must in my collection. This is, then, a decent release bumped up by uniqueness and necessity. I will also add that the 'Appassionata' is a wonderful piece to have performed on fortepiano, it sounds, to me, so much fuller on an instrument whose impurities make it sound larger than a mere solo. But other performances of this do exist, notably the fascinating Lambert Orkis performances on three different varieties of piano.

Edit: A year ago I must have been far, far worse at tracking down such material, as I am now familiar with two other recordings of the 14th sonata on period pianos: Yoko Kaneko's release on Anima, performed on a reproduction of a Walter; and Alexei Lubimov's release on Alpha, performed on an Érard. Both of these also include wonderful performances of the 'Tempest' sonata, and while all three are worth hearing, I would buy both of these before the Chai disc in question.
