I would like to call your attention to the wonderful cycle of Annie Fischer of Beethoven piano sonatas. For  me, her play is the one which most probably recreate Beethoven's passionate raw energies, passion, drive and at the same time tender and weakness when his mood was like that.

Thanks for the post.

 

Wikipedia says that she worked 15 years in this set and that was released only after her death.

She didn't allow the release during her lifetime.

She was a wonderful pianist. Unfortunately, she was a perfectionist and did not leave behind a great mass of recordings. A few cds only, 4 pianoconcertos of Mozart, a Liszt piano sonata, Bartok 3rd piano concerto... a  bit of Schuman. None the less, she was probably one of the finest pianist of the XXth century. She worked painstakingly on these set, working throigh 15 years, repeatedly making new and new takes than these takes were put together, but She was not content with the result. Aftter her death was released this set. I think one of the most engaging record of Beethoven. Not all, not everything and sometimes problems of recording, but great achievment. One must hear this.

some more Annie Fischer love:

sound quality is just acceptable, but I always put this CDs on when I want to listen to Mozart rather than to "famous pianist XYZ"

I would be VERY happy to hear that series on vinyl.

I have it on cd but found it of inconsistent. 

 

Even so when it's not "perfect" it's still amazing to me.

 

The recent recordings by folks like Fischer and Kocsis

also are also important in this context.

Actually, I am located in Hungary. Here you can find a lot of these LPs at bargain price. If you interested in getting them, please feel free to send a message and we may work out how to get them over there.

Thanks for your offer!

 

Unfortunately, I had to sell my turntable and related components(and many records) fairly recently so the records won't do me much good.

 

On a related note,I've been buying many of these recordings on cd at budget prices in the US(and Europe) for many years and I still see them around.

This is cd makes me remember to one of the most moving concert I have ever seen. Bach Johannes Passion with Kuijken, four singers, four in a choir and a very minimal group of musicians. If I remember well even there was smaller group, only 3-5 string players, two flutes, two oboes, a lute, and an organ. A moving, intimate, tender and at the same time heartbreaking performance, .

I'm sure it was an awesome performance indeed.

Back to Beethoven subject, I listened again this one recently.

Impressive Pastoral performance. Perfect tempo. Really fine.

I'm very happy with the Borodin Quartet box of Beethoven quartets I bought recently.. now listening to opus 132..

 

 

 

 

I already have (the second) Alexander-, Emerson, Takacs and Smetana Quartets

 

 

Any other suggestions are welcome! I prefer the sound quality to be decent at least ..

I wanted to ask before what speakers you use and have you heard the hd800 for any of your favorite albums? I just got a pair. I really like them
