CD Reviews

Utterly Convincing Beethoven
Fiddle-Faddle | Redlands, CA United States | 03/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Moravec draws you intimately inside the veil with impeccable technique, a broad range of coloration, intelligently wrought tempi, the best voicing I have ever heard, and a good sense of style that seems to fit Beethoven snugly. I love this man's playing. This gentleman possesses virtuosity without pretension. This is the true art of music making."
Sensitive Performance
B. J. Simon | 08/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard one of these sonatas at a recital and asked the pianist to recommend a recording. He recommended Ivan Moravec, saying he wasn't very well known in the states, but did the best performance of this work. Boy was he right. Graceful, sensitive, expressive - I've never heard the piano sound so human. He also said that Ivan Moravec's Chopin Nocturnes are wonderful too - that will be my next purchase."
A first rank pianist!
Hiram Gomez Pardo | Valencia, Venezuela | 10/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ivan Moravec has been regarded as one of the most brilliant pianists of the century but in what concerns to Beethoven's repertoire his name has not achieved the well deserved acclaim.

His sound reveals not only a deep empathy with the score, but besides a conceptual density and intellectual commitment as I have heard in artists of the caliber of Kempff, Schnabel, Badura Skoda, Nat or Gulda.Concise, austere,lyrical and imaginative.

A must-have in your invaluable collection.
