Judging by the interview documented in the liner notes, Alexej Gorlatch is a very intelligent and mature young pianist. That impression is certainly borne out in these performances. He has the necessary technique for all the storms of these minor-key works from Beethoven’s ‘middle-period’. With this is coupled a gentle sensitivity which sounds natural rather than applied.
