Artur Schnabel's complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas, recorded between 1932 and 1938, constitute a monument of the catalogue. In 1937 Gramophone wrote: "To [his] technical mastery Schnabel adds and fuses an intensely intelligent, not merely 'intellectual' mind … The result is a perfectly blended interpretation of the music as a spiritual expression and as a musical organism." Remastered from the original 78RPM discs, these legendary recordings can now be enjoyed in audio of unprecedented truthfulness and quality.
