This inexhaustible collection of Beethoven’s piano works is highly recommended to players who wish to gain deeper insight into Beethoven’s musical development. It contains all of Beethoven’s piano compositions except for the 32 sonatas, the variations and the dances, and thus presents works from all stages of this great composer’s life. Included are his endearing Bagatelles op. 33, the album leaf “Für Elise”, “The Rage over a Lost Penny” and the three “Kurfürsten” Sonatas WoO 47. In its layout our Urtext edition closely follows Beethoven’s notational practice. Making the texts match optically in this way unlocks the tonal-spatial connections within the pieces very clearly, leading the pianist closer to Beethoven.
