Never surpassed!
R. M Connors | Dedham, MA USA | 04/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Several years ago I heard about half of the Pastoral sonata from this album on the radio, and it startled and haunted me until I recently got my own copy. Pollini's playing is pure pleasure; a lovely blend of aggressiveness and restraint; each note so gorgeously expressed it can be practically hugged and enjoyed simply for itself. This playing is unique and not to be missed!!"
Not to be overlooked

"There is much to enjoy in Pollini's ongoing Beethoven cycle on DG, the most famous set being the late sonatas recorded in the '70s and the most recent a welcome double album including both a studio and live version of the "Appassionata" (he has done the concertos and "Waldstein" twice as well). As other reviewers have noted, this version of the "Moonlight" sonata stands among the best, but the other sonata quasi una fanatasia is just as persuasive, if not more so. The "Pastoral" on this disc strikes me as most convincing in its well-judged phrasing, natural pace, and warm tone--recommended without reservation."
Pollini is king

"Maurizio Pollini has to be one of the finest pianists ever. I swear the man has 3 hands. His technique is incredible, yet it doesn't outweigh the emotion necessary when it comes to performing. This disc is amazing."
