Age 14? Really?
It was completed in May of 1823. Already it’s clearly the work of what would normally be a seasoned adult. What he could already do as a teenager is actually quite frightening.
This recording is very recent, and the string sound for me is absolutely perfect. It seems that they got some of the period instrument sound by using very little virbrato, but the sound is also rich.
Even the Covid spacing is interesting and perhaps lends something to a very special sound.
