Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

These three sonatas emerged from the creative maturity of Beethoven's middle years--that is, when he was nearing 30. Each brims with its own individual personality, and pianist John O'Conor fully understands and develops to the fullest each work's unique musical and expressive character. This culmination of O'Conor's complete Beethoven sonata cycle maintains the same high standard set in the first volume. --David Vernier

Thanks John O'Conor ! This is how it should be played, not like a speed competition ! What technique and feeling !!Every note is clear and concise!! The tempo is perfect !! His attention to playing is entirely without flaw, defects, or shortcommings!

His mastery of the Beethoven sonatas is unquestionable! His cycle of the Beethoven piano sonatas proves him as a musical potentate!

The piano sound is exquisite. The tone, sustain, and reverb are as rich as the Telarc name!!

I have owned this cd for over 20 years. Get the complete set of all 32 Beethoven piano sonatas on 9 cd's from Telarc and John O'Conor!

In my opinion
John O'Conner plays the Beethoven Sonatas the best.
Murray Perahia plays the Mozart piano concertos the best
Jorges Bolet plays the Liszt's "Trancendental Etudes" the best

Please remember this is just my opinion. I do not seek, nor relish, hostile or vindictive animus from anyone.

Good Day Friends !!

These are among the lesser known beethoven sonatas, but they reveal much about the composer who is commonly regarded as the apex of classical composition.
John O'Conor plays these works well, I have recordings by pianists who have a more marked style, but I still find O'Conor satisfying.
