"…This second volume pairs the first and third sonatas, so now we have the complete sonatas in period performances. Instead of the Johann Baptist Streicher, an 1849/50 Bösendorfer is employed and gives a certain extra element of brightness, weight and tonal depth without sacrificing anything of the clarity that period instruments tend to bring to the proceedings. (…) The recording from MDG, again a 2+2+2 production, is as clear and rounded as that in volume 1. Very highly recommended and one looks forward to future volumes." ~SA-CD.net

…It is often said that Brahms was late in writing a symphony but Rittner's playing shows that to be false; these works are symphonic in scope and scale - all that was left was for Brahms to produce an orchestration. Apart from capturing the grand sweep of the phrases and the structure of the compositions, Rittner also delivers on the poetry of the music. No detail escapes his attention but neither does it interrupt the musical narrative. Rittner's playing is fully at the service of the music, not his self-aggrandisement. The recording from MDG, again a 2+2+2 production, is as clear and rounded as that in volume 1.

…If you’re unfamiliar with Feldman’s nuanced, nondevelopmental music, this may not be the easiest point of entry, but . . . well, there probably isn’t an easy point of entry after all, so why not just dive in?

…Playing a piano of 1851 (well tuned but far from the crystalline brilliance of a modern Steinway - think Bösendorfer crossed with a fortepiano) by Johann Baptist Streicher, Hardy Rittner draws powerful, dramatic yet eloquent musical sounds from this veteran instrument. (…) The recording from MDG is a 2+2+2 variant but thanks to the single instrument, there is less sonic confusion and the quality is of amongst the highest that the company has issued.

…It's intriguing to imagine how a very slow performance would come off, but Schleiermacher's is a fully persuasive version of a piece that could have a number of very different but valid interpretations. MGD's natural, unprocessed sound is, as is typical for the label, immaculate and vivid.
