Notes & Reviews:

The infamous Alfred Brendel is releasing Beethoven's complete piano sonatas - now available at a budget price in a capbox 10-cd box set. Brendel's recordings of these sonatas capture his playing between 1992 and 1996. Brendel transforms the Beethoven sonatas adding his own intriguing interpretation to this set of works making them like never before. This collection is well worth the listen!

Gramophone Magazine
No self-respecting Brendel collection could be without his traversal of the Beethoven sonatas. Always a thinker's pianist, there is plenty to engage the head and some of his ideas are as controversial as they are unique. Vital listening, though, whatever your position.

MusicWeb International
Brendel allow[s] Beethoven's notes to speak for themselves, perhaps imposing less personality and interpretation on the music, but allowing the depth of Beethoven's experience to be channelled through his own...the stimulating energy in [the Hammerklavier], Brendel's farewell to this work, is electric
