Steven Osborne’s third Beethoven recital for Hyperion is an endlessly enlightening album. His nuances and shading are so fine as to be barely perceptible. In particular, he offers a magnificent overview of the final sonata’s polarity between the temporal and spiritual. His Arietta is hushed and reverential yet without a trace of excess, a true ‘drift towards the shores of Paradise’ – in Edward Sackville-West’s poetic words.
