Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These 1983 live Beethoven Piano Concerto recordings relay a real sense of occasion. Brendel and Levine both exhibit high energy throughout. Brendel plays in his usual intellectually brilliant manner, with an emphasis on technical polish and an occasional bit of humor."

-- Victor Carr Jr, ClassicsToday.com Reviewing Philips 470 938
