About

This 2011 box set brings together Alfred Brendel's first recording for Philips of the complete cycle of Beethoven's piano sonatas and his recording of all five piano concertos. Brendel was one of the handful of all-time Beethoven masters, known for his intelligent, yet entirely musical and effective interpretations. These recordings, all (including the concertos) dating from the 1970s, represent his playing at the height of his skills. Brendel did make a second set of the sonatas for Philips in the early '90s, recorded digitally, so some audiophiles may prefer the sound of those over these earlier, analog recordings, but the artistry is still in these. For the concertos, Brendel is joined by Bernard Haitink and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
