- Piano Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109
- Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110
- Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111
These are fresh, vibrant readings presented in a fluent, eagerly communicative style. It is as if this gifted young player was anxious to share his perceptions of the richness of these pieces without delay. Loftier perspectives that with the application greater maturity may bring, can wait. All to the good, in my view, that Freddy Kempf has felt the call early and is not phased by the attitude that sets up late Beethoven as one of the highest achievements of man, to be approached only on one's knees.
