“a man who plays Beethoven with the innocent self-assurance of the virtuoso...He is happiest when his hands are full: in the finales, for instance, where the forthrightness and his technical address are admirable and he can cook iup a storm or two.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

“these performances are deeply felt and as the talk on the disc confirms, very thoroughly researched by Buchbinder who compares many different editions of the works he is performing.” MusicWeb International, May 2012

Royal Festival Hall, London, Source: BBC archives, 1988


Murray Perahia, nominated for artist of the year in the 2008 Gramophone Awards, has often been described as an aristocrat of the piano, with good reason. His commanding vision and his supremely polished virtuosity are complemented by a luminous intelligence and a poetic sensitivity, embracing equally the lyric and the epic. His career has recently been revitalised, after many years, with the new release on Sony/BMG of Beethoven Piano Sonatas and Bach Partitas.

"Each note was characterised by a singing tone whose weight and emotional colour was individually judged yet forming part of a massively conceived and controlled structure." The Guardian

“Murray Perahia… is undoubtedly on tremendous form. He displays limitless reserves of strength for the bravura passages and a huge strong tenderness in, for instance, the opening of the slow movement of the Third Concerto.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2009 ***

“[Perahia's] playing is peerless and Marriner gives him vital and sensitive support” Penguin Guide, 2010

“These 1974 broadcasts preserve Haitink's lively but elegant readings with the young Vladimir Ashkenazy's engaging performances.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2007 ****

“the sound quality is remarkably good. The performances by a strikingly youhthul Ashkenazy are full of spirit...In many ways the Emperor is the finest of all, freshly inspired, not barnstorming, witha a beautiful, hushed slow movement. The camerawork is straightforward, as one would expect from Brian Large” Penguin Guide, 2010 ***
