Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release from piano legend Idil Biret features the complete solo piano music and piano concertos of Johannes Brahms. This set has already been praised by countless musicians and critics. “This is the real complete solo piano music of Brahms.” (Diapason, France) “Through all 12+ hours of this colossal undertaking, Idil Biret’s playing is never less than excellent, and in many cases, hers deserve to be among the performances of choice.” (American Record Guide USA) Perhaps the most impressive review is that of Brahms expert Bernard Jacobson’s for Fanfare USA: “As the author of a book about Brahms, I do not think I can praise Idil Biret’s set of his piano music more highly than by acknowledging that her performances have transformed my Read more understanding and intensified my love for it… Her achievement is a triumph, and calls for a resounding bravo from all lovers of Brahms.” Read less
