Schiff’s fine Beethoven sonata cycle was recorded live between 2004 and 2006; attendees at these concerts were further treated to a characteristically insightful series of encores, which are gathered here into an appealing recital disc in its own right. Beethoven himself is represented here solely by the Andante favori, otherwise it is composers close to Schiff who feature: Schubert’s coruscating C minor Allegretto; a Haydn Sonata, Bach – with poised, crisp playing and superb recorded sound, this makes a delightful codicil to a great cycle.
