“There are many prized recordings of the Beethoven sonatas from past masters and current artists. But if I had to recommend a single complete set, I would suggest Mr. Lewis’s distinguished recordings.” Anthony Tommasini, New York Times

“One of the most highly prized recording marathons of recent years… An unmissable benchmark.” Gramophone
