Notes & Reviews:

"According to Brendel's booklet notes, these performances 'reproduce my musical intentions more faithfully and immediately than did the perhaps more 'impeccable' studio recordings of these works.'... Brendel now considers the May 30, 2001 Royal Festival Hall Diabelli Variations the favorite of his four published traversals of a work particularly close to his heart. Certainly it's the most spontaneous in regard to timing, characterization, and dynamic inflections... Brendel fans seeking their hero's Diabellis will find much to savor here." -Classics Today (9/8)
