Notes and Editorial Reviews

...a commanding performance of Beethoven's Choral Fantasy... Brendel's playing of the slow movement of No. 5 was for me one of the high spots of his set, for its measured calm is perfect...

 UNBEATABLE! July 15, 2013 By Elaine A V. (Liverpool, NY) See All My Reviews "How sweet can life be for a Beethoven and a Brendel lover. That Brendel is, in by opinion, the best pianist going (kinda still in there) is just the beginning. The recording is also outstanding. But the icing on the cake is: to have both of these pieces of Beethoven on the same CD. The 5th (Emperor) concerto AND the Fantasia on the same CD means you need only take one CD in the car with you for a long and lovely journey." Report Abuse
