Beethoven’s compositions for piano duet embrace works written for students as well as those designed for aristocratic acquaintances and friends. This release presents two recordings of the complete works: the first (album 1) on a modern Yamaha piano, and the second (album 2) on chronologically accurate reproductions of the fortepianos Beethoven was composing on at the time. The modern piano was recorded in a concert hall, whereas the period instrument recording was made in a much more intimate space, showcasing the salon performance settings of the past.
 

                       **** - (Excellent Disc)

 

Massimo Viazzo - Musica magazine - September 2013


"From beginning to end ... there is much listening pleasure to be had—twice over—courtesy both of Beethoven and the Hamanns…They are elegant and perceptive, self-confident and telepathic. Audio quality is also very good. The fortepiano has an attractive sound that should lenify even those who are no admirers of period instruments. Failing that, hearing the instruments one after another like this will serve to strengthen individual prejudices one way or the other!" 
 
Byzantion - MusicWeb-International.com - March 2013
 

"As with most lesser-known Beethoven, there are so many wonderful moments to discover. The Marches especially have a joyful virtuosity and some surprising formal elements like held cadences with cadenzas. The Hamann performances must be described as sparkling. Even though [Grosse Fuge] is a work difficult for both performers and listeners, detailed study and repeated hearings reveal possibly the greatest of many fugues in the late works of Beethoven. The performances here are both quite good ...Excellent recorded sound and good booklet notes complete a release that will supply listeners with contrasting and complementary views of some great music."
