Jerry Dubins
Fanfare, January 2013

The Gesangvoll movement of the E-Major Sonata…is delivered with a rarified concentration, a purity of soul, and a radiance of tone that held me spellbound in a state of spiritual rapture. These are Beethoven’s final essays in a form he has taken to the summit, from where he gazes down upon his self-transformed and refashioned landscape.

The clarity of Korstick’s voicing in the A♭-Major Sonata’s last movement fugal sections is revelatory, and the disciplined velocity of his fingerwork in the C-Minor Sonata’s first movement Allegro is breathtaking. With technique to burn, Korstick stirs up a storm of passions that range from blistering rage to urgent entreaty.

Korstick’s playing has rendered me speechless. I don’t know what else to say about these magnificent performances and phenomenal recording, other than to exhort you to acquire it without delay. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review

American Record Guide, November 2012

…a very fine recording indeed, and Korstick proves himself a fine musician with a great feel for late Beethoven.

His playing is well paced and very sensitive. He knows how to produce the necessary moments of drama…Sonata 32, a wonderful demonstration of color, brings excitement without feeling hurried.

…if this release is any indication of the quality of Korstick’s other recordings, it is worth listening to. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review
