This special 11CD box set from ECM Records contains András Schiff's masterful interpretation of Beethoven's complete piano sonatas recorded live in concert at the Tonhalle in Zürich. The box includes encores from these concerts with works by Schubert, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Bach, as well as an extensive booklet, which re-collects all original conversations around the sonatas, and adds an insightful new text by Schiff reflecting upon the encores after Beethoven.

Andras Schiff: "The Beethoven sonatas can be logically divided into three distinct groups: early, middle and late. To me, playing them in chronological order is most convincing and deeply satisfying. Among the thirty-two there is not one weak link. And this way the listener is able to follow the process of evolution, step by step. It is a learning experience; we are fellow travelers on a fantastic voyage."

"Beethoven sonata cycles are occasions, but they don't always make history. This one did...The recordings are luminous. Although they were recorded live in Zurich, Switzerland, they reveal a kind of preserved freshness. An ideal piano dances in imaginary space. Everything in Beethoven can be heard, savored, adored. I recommend them without qualification." - Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
