Following up his highly acclaimed release of Beethoven sonatas, Hyperion's Gramophone-award-winning pianist Steven Osborne turns his talents to Beethoven's complete Bagatelles. Though the composer himself referred to these thirty short piano works, which he penned throughout his life, as trifles, these are nonetheless trifles from the mind of a genius. In this polished album, Osborne lends his remarkable artistry to everything from the Six Bagatelles of Op 126, which at times occupy the same rarefied spiritual world as the late quartets and were the very last works Beethoven ever wrote for the piano, to the composer's most famous stand-alone piano piece, the mysterious little A minor Bagatelle known to all the world as "Fur Elise".

I'm resurrecting here some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real project behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the tide. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
