François Frédéric Guy releases Beethoven Sonatas Volume 1 CD
13 Dec 2011
Zig-Zag Territories release Beethoven Sonatas Volume 1 played by François Frédéric Guy. This volume consists of 11 Sonatas.
"If we had to find a similar approach amongst the great masters, it would have to be the first attempts of Backhaus or Kempff in the 30s. But neither Backhaus nor Kempff succeeded in giving us everything the first time. We hope that Francois-Frédéric Guy is able to follow in their footsteps and with what he presents us here; he seems off to a good start." - CD Review
‘To play the complete Beethoven sonatas in public represents the most exhilarating project I have attempted, a tremendous artistic and human challenge. Beethoven explores sonic and poetic regions that in my view still remain, even in the early twenty-first century, his "exclusive territory".’ - François Frédéric Guy
