    One of the cleanest edition - I thoroughly enjoy it whenever I learn/practice/read off of this copy. Also the three WoO sonatas are such bonus. I trust the scholarly editing by DelMar that I know I’m playing the version closest to Beethoven’s.The only things is - it...

    lacks fingering (because it’s Urtext) so this cannot be the only copy you own if you are a serious performer. I personally have the Schnabel version and the Alfred version by Gordon.

    I would only recommend this series to the ultimate collector and/or scholar/performer. Some of the sonatas are very difficult to play well, while some are of intermediate/advanced level. But again, only for the serious minded!
