Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alfred Brendel in his prime, completely dominating Beethoven’s most difficult and demanding piano work, Piano Sonata No. 29, known as “Hammerklavier.” Brendel also brings his virtuosity to Sonatas Nos. 27 and 28, the latter of which is the first solo piano work of Beethoven’s deeply personal and expressive “Late Period” sonatas. The depth and arduousness of these works require a master in full command of his abilities, and Brendel delivers.

"A fine strong performance of Beethoven’s most formidable sonata from Brendel... Concentration and sense of drama are most striking... His later recordings sometimes have not quite the fire and spontaneity that marked his invigorating Vox Vienna recordings... [These recordings] sound
Read more impressively full and present." -- Penguin Guide
