Editorial Reviews

Stephen Kovacevich, originally known as Stephen Bishop, has emerged in recent years as one of our most thoughtful interpreters of the classic piano literature. These three sonatas of Beethoven were published together, and they make a very fine listening program, from the quirky stop-and-go No. 16 (one of the least-played of Beethoven's sonatas), to the overt drama of No. 17 (the "Tempest"), to the bouncy humor of No. 18. Kovacevich stays with Beethoven all the way, bringing the character of each sonata to life. You'll seldom get as much of a laugh from the finale of No. 18 as he gives you here. A most distinguished disc. --Leslie Gerber
