Penguin Guide, January 2009

Schnabel’s Emperor was recorded in 1932 when he was at the height of his powers. Schnabel had met Piatigorsky in the 1920s. Alas, they made no records, and this 1934 set of the G minor Cello Sonata is the sole representation of Schnabel’s collaboration with the greatest cellist. It is very distinguished indeed.

Fanfare, November 2001

BEETHOVEN: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 (Schnabel) (1932, 1935) 8.110638
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concertos Nos. 3 and 4 (Schnabel) (1933) 8.110639
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5 / Cello Sonata No. 2 (Schnabel) (1932) 8.110640

the recent Naxos edition deserves recognition—its bargain price and superior sound, the transfers by Marc Obert-Thorn being the best I have encountered. A welcome bonus on the third disc is another superb transfer featuring Schnabel and Piatagorsky in dashing account of Beethoven’s Sonata op. 5/2 for cello and piano. © 2001 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare
