Richard Goode's Grammy-nominated, ten-CD box set of the complete Beethoven sonatas, says The Guardian, "are performances to which one can return without fear of finding them stale. They lack mannerisms and any sense of a performing ego trying to insinuate itself between the music and listener—the same selfless gift that his teacher Rudolf Serkin exemplified. Superb." "An outstanding set," exclaims the New York Times. "It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally and intellectually as suited to the challenges of these sonatas." Gramophone calls it "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."
