"Berger and Hohenrieder start with the two set of Beethoven variations, testament to the young composer's admiration of Mozart (in fact Beethoven wrote a total of four set of variations on themes from Mozart's operas). Here Berger and Hohenrieder play with easy charm and lyrical facility. I loved the way that, whilst not playing on a period instrument, Hohenrieder keeps her tone neat and tight whilst still expressive, so that the performances do not stretch the works beyond their natural shape."  more »
