Beethoven, Piano Works. Paul Cartianu

"His interpretations are of exceptional clarity, technically flawless, and free of any idiosyncrasies or mannerisms. To call them textbook performances would be faint praise. They have a tensile strength that betrays firm and meticulous control of every detail, without neglecting expression. While perhaps not as deeply moving or comfortingly warm as some others, they are arresting and illuminating: they shine a bright light on Beethoven’s music. Here is an artist I would like to hear again soon."

-Bruno Repp, American Record Guide
