Notes & Reviews:

Two DVD set. Alfred Brendel one of the leading musicians of our time gives once-in-a-lifetime access into his private world. In an illuminating 70-minute documentary that chronicles his childhood and early influences Alfred Brendel reveals his stature as a performer displays his admiration for the work of other artists and speaks about his views and ideas. In addition there is a 30-minute conversation at the piano in which Sir Simon Rattle and Alfred Brendel discuss Beethoven's Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 3.

"This is an excellent production, sober and thoughtful, just like the cover shot of Alfred Brendel looking pensively skywards...The documentary is exactly what it says: a portrait, affectionate, respectful, not critical but revealing. I'm no intimate but I'm sure it conveys the essence of what makes Brendel tick: his deep intellectual, aesthetic and psychological curiosity and honesty, inscrutable products." - International Record Review

"...masterly performances..." - The Gramophone
"...a wonderfully warm and detailed picture of the great pianist... a superlative production throughout... Brendel in Portrait is an exemplary DVD." - Billboard, USA
