Berger’s playing is finely classical, but fluid with a lovely sense of detail in the phrasing and articulation (in the scherzo he follows Beethoven’s pupil Carl Czerny’s instructions for the articulation). I can imagine other performances of the Beethoven but this is a testament to a fascinating journey of exploration that can be recommended.
