review extracts:
"This is a recording for the collector, rather than the first timer. It features exquisite performances from Peter Sheppard Skaerved and pianist Aaron Shorr of little-known works by the great Ludwig van Beethoven. The playing is beautiful and Beethoven's Sonata in A Major and 6 Deutsche Tanze are fascinating harmonic works." - Andy Richardson, Shropshire Star
