Editorial Reviews

"Biret grasps the size of Beethoven' style. The polyphony is laid out in a relaxed way with little indulgence in point making. She keeps the big line and yet is thankfully sparing in her use of fortissimos. The piano tone is sumptuous. Biret' gentle

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Turkish pianist Idil Biret has recorded Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas on her own record label, the "Idil Biret Archives," distributed by Naxos. I have a place in my heart for budget-priced recordings of the Beethoven sonatas because they gave me my first recorded experience with this music many decades ago. Biret offers well-thought out and generally subdued readings of these works. There is great competition in recordings of the Beethoven sonatas at every price range, but her recordings are good choices in a crowded field. Biret's releases of the sonata cycle began in 2009 and are continuing with the release of a new CD every other month. Each CD generally includes three sonatas. This format allows the listener to hear a small group of works at one sitting rather that try to absorb Beethoven's entire output at once in a box set. The format also allows the listener to focus on some of the less familiar sonatas, a practice sometimes discouraged by recordings which concentrate on the few most familiar works. I have been enjoying revisiting the sonatas in Biret's recordings and in presenting my thoughts on each work here on Amazon in the hope to encourage new listeners to hear this music.

This recent CD includes three varied works, sonata no. 6 in F major, op. 10 no. 2, sonata no. 12 in A flat major, op. 26, and the "Pastoral" sonata, no. 15 in D major op. 28 that show Beethoven coming into his own voice as a composer for the piano. Biret recorded the former two sonatas in 2003 while the recording of the Pastoral dates from 2005. There is no single performance style that fits all of Beethoven. Biret wisely adjusts her playing to meet the individual character of each work.
