“The distillation of a lifetime investigating composers’ truest intentionsthis account of the work heaps revelation on revelation.” – Paul Driver (The Sunday Times)

‘In working with Beethoven’s tempi over the course of many years I have found that they have come to seem absolutely right, and in fact liberating rather than constricting for they open up a wealth of interpretative possibilities that would not work at slower tempi and that seem true to the essence of Beethoven’s musical spirit.’

— Benjamin Zander
