Review by raffells January 29, 2006 (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
A change of Pianist for Membrans solo Beethoven and Ortiz has a good reputation in her Beethoven concertos.This is also an excellent disc ,almost in direct battle with Pentatones similair disc, then theres very little in it except cost.Possibly the superior DSD recording may swing it for some but this is still a bargain.The opening Pathetique is very very slightly faster than some "classic" versions and the Tempest doesnt go overboard.Finishing the shortish 57 minutes disc is a delightfull Moonlight..Difficult to find fault except the usual caveat re cover picture and the disc itself states Royal Philharmonic collection "Beethoven."Which is a very lazy economical production.Especially if you leave it out of the case.We Could now do with a Hammerklavier or an encore disc of piano rarities. dAVE
