About

Steven Osborne has repeatedly proved himself a Beethovenian of profound insight. In these three late sonatas — including the monumental ‘Hammerklavier’ — he gives performances of stunning impact and lasting fulfilment.

Reviews

This is Steven Osborne’s 25th recording for Hyperion and what a marker it is. The Scottish pianist plays with an authority built on intelligent, very human musicianship: his accounts of these three late-period Beethoven sonatas are hugely personal but are never about him. He orders the music in reverse, starting with the fearsome Hammerklavier and playing the explosive outer movements with a high-definition elan that makes this wildest of Beethoven sonatas sound even wilder.  Kate Molleson
