Musicweb International Recordings of the Year 2007

"As with BIS's other ongoing Beethoven cycle - Vanska's journey through the symphonies - I find myself looking forward ever more eagerly to each new instalment of Brautigam's sonata cycle. His uncluttered playing and knack for bringing out inner voices on his fabulous fortepiano make his accounts consistently illuminating. This fourth volume features excellent performances of the two Op.27 sonatas in particular, and a Pastoral that ranks with the most delightful on disc."

Fanfare, November - December 2007
"On period instruments, Brautigam is in a class by himself"

Gramophone, June 2007
"It took some time before I was able to unpin myself from the wall, limp over to my laptop, and tell... uh, I mean warn you about this performance."

Gramophone, October 2007
"Ronald Brautigam pushes his Paul McNulty instrument to its dynamic limits yet remaining in total physical control."
