If I belong to a tradition it is a tradition that makes the masterpiece tell the performer what he should do and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the composer what he ought to have composed. --Alfred Brendel
One of the greatest pianists in the world. --The Guardian
Brendel has always stood alone in what he does. He was a very individual voice when I first met him more than 40 years ago his concert life was on an upswing as he reached 40, but he had a large body of recordings already behind him that were evidence of a wide range of repertoire, delivered with insight and energy, and fuelled in their integrity by active interest in the visual arts, literature and humour. --Imogen Cooper
Since Alfred Brendel retired from performing a few years ago, I’ve been waiting for the Big Box Set of his records. It is coming soon from Decca: a 114-disc set, containing everything he recorded for Phillips and Decca over the years. (Well, not everything; it has two of his Beethoven sonata cycles out of three, but both of the Schubert cycles.) It won’t include his recordings for Vox and Turnabout, which he has said he doesn’t care for. Brendel is one of the finest pianists on record, and one of my personal favorites.
Alfred Brendel Complete Recordings (Amazon.com, Amazon UK) is currently listed at $287 or ?234, and due to be released on January 8, 2016, in the UK, and on January 15 in the US. Interestingly, it’s listed at only ?130 on the Decca website, so either pre-order and wait for the price to drop on Amazon, or get it directly from the label. (My bet is that the price will drop on Amazon, as is often the case.)
As the Decca website says:
“An exclusive artist for the Philips label since 1969, Brendel’s discography is now among the most extensive of any pianist, reflecting a repertoire of solo, chamber and orchestral works by the major composers from the central European tradition from Bach through to Schoenberg.
This 114 CD Edition encompasses his complete discography for Philips and Decca and includes studio albums, live recordings and radio broadcasts. The set is accompanied by a 200-page book featuring a note by Brendel’s personal choice of writer, Misha Donat.”
