This survey is meant to list all complete sets of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas and their availability in different markets, not to review them. 

For those of you wanting to let me know about series that I have apparently missed, please wait for my last instalment.

Gerard Willems
1997 - 2000? - ABC

The piano used was an Australian Stuart & Sons which differs from a standard grand piano in a few salient points and promises, among other factors, greater dynamics and increased sustain. (And, Nigel Tufnel would exclaim: This piano's number of pedals goes to four!)

Availability - directly from Australia.
