BBC Music Magazine

May 2007

****

“…another fine instalment in Brautigam's continuing Beethoven cycle, with all the music's drama and urgency vividly captured, and a warmly expressive approach to the slow movements without a hint of sentimentality.”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2007

“Vol 4 of his cycle matched its predecessors' excellences stimulating interpretations that take historic performance practices into account, yet leave plenty of room for personal expression. In the Moonlight Sonata the straightforward Allegretto seems a shade literal and characterless, yet more than one edgy crescendo gives Brautigam's poker face away. It hardly prepares you for a Presto agitato from hell; such controlled fury and unrelenting intensity, yet musical to the core, and never banged out.”
