Following the earlier releases of the Beethoven sonatas 1-4 and 5-7, September 2021 sees the release of the last instalment of the complete sonata cycle with the sonatas 8 – 10 performed by Frank Peter Zimmermann and Martin Helmchen. The first instalments garnered distinctions such as Choc de Classica and Cum Laude (Luister), with performances that “wed classical verve to a profoundly Romantic spirit” (Gramophone) in “recordings that are conversations by a perfect instrumental pairing.” (BBC Music Magazine).
