'Over and above the purely musical aspect that makes Beethoven one of the greatest composers of all time, what stands out for me is the lesson of a moral being: insofar as Beethoven sets himself immensly high standards, immense rigour and courage - in his life, in everything he undertakes, in the authenticity of even the slightest of his artistic gestures - his attitude must rub off on his interpreter. That's why I think that, for me, Beethoven has represented not only one of the most profound lessons in music, but also a lesson in life.' Abdel Rahman El Bacha

In Archiv's original-image bit-processing remastered transfers as well, the sound is better than ever. This is cornerstone Bach that should not be missed.
