Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23 in F minor, Op. 57 (colloquially known as the Appassionata, meaning "passionate" in Italian) is among the three famous piano sonatas of his middle period (the others being the Waldstein, Op. 53 and Les Adieux, Op. 81a); it was composed during 1804 and 1805, and perhaps 1806, and was dedicated to Count Franz von Brunswick.

This sonata was composed by Beethoven in 1804 and dedicated to count Ferdinand von Waldstein, his first protector in Bonn, the one who arranged for Beethoven to study with Haydn in Vienna. That is why the sonata op. 53 is also known as the Waldstein sonata. Interestingly enough, French music lovers and critics have also named the sonata L’Aurore, as a result of the aesthetical significations of the work: light and serenity  . The Waldstein sonata is considered to be one of the notable piano sonatas that Beethoven ever composed, maybe equaled only by the Appassionata sonata. They are both part of the works between op. 50 and op.

Schnabel's Sonata in E major is radiant bliss, his Sonata in A flat is luminous ecstasy, and his Sonata in C minor is numinous spirituality. Generations of critics have carped at Schnabel's technique and, in truth, he does lack the technique to play the closing movement of the Appassionata at tempo. But generations of listeners have heard Schnabel's deep soul and his sublime musicianship and have therefore cheerfully disregarded any critical quibbles in gratitude for Schnabel's transcendent performances. 22 in F major, Op. 54. 4. I. In tempo d'un Menuetto.

"An H.M.V. recording, released in Australia exclusively by World Record Club."

Australian WRC 2nd pressing - "3221" on sleeve, "R-00183" on labels. No laminate strip down the back of the right side of the sleeve - unlikely to be any difference to the 3rd pressing, from 1978/9. It is one of life's mysteries why Vol. 12 has a higher catalogue number than Vol. 13...
