Useless to say, Schiff gets the very essence of this music. He seems completely immersed in it and follows a logical and expressive line. His theoretical insights and artistic honesty lead him to a remarkable achievement. His conversations with the Swiss musicologist Martin Meyer (included in the booklets of all the volumes in the cycle) are a priceless guide in understanding and approaching Beethoven’s universe. A persistent sense of narration and a wondrous flavor of authenticity surface the proceedings. Schiff seems one of the most entitled interpreters to convey the inexhaustible beauties of this supremely existential repertoire.
