John O'Conor's complete set of Beethoven piano sonatas is a monumental achievement, not only for the sheer volume of music recorded, but for its coherent interpretive scope and its successful illumination of developmental aspects of Beethoven's ever-evolving style. The sound, too, is a revelation, perfectly capturing O'Conor's Hamburg Steinway in the ideal acoustics of Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts. --David Vernier
