BBC Radio 3 has reported the death of Bernard Roberts, whose 1980s cycle of Beethoven piano sonatas on Nimbus was a byword for thoughtful interpretation and state-of-art recording. He was 80 years old.

  • Wonderful man, wonderful musician. A musician of the utmost integrity. Who could ever forget his performances of Beethoven at Dartington.

  • My piano teacher for several years. Every meeting a new insight and new solutions. A sad goodbye to a kind, inspiring man.
