“Roberts stood up well to the competition in every respect. He is not always top dog in a particular sonata, but nearly always close...I’d certainly strongly endorse the complete Nimbus set for reliable performances – often much than that – a decent quality of recording and sheer value.”
“Previously it was the plain, often rugged honesty of Roberts' interpretations which struck home, and that is still so ... but now, without the extreme constraints of direct-to-disc recording he is generally more personal. On any count this is by far the best-recorded cycle of Beethoven sonatas issued or in the process of issue on CD. This is not for the collector looking for a neat package, but for the Beethovenian wanting to enjoy a satisfying recital.”
