Description
These revelatory, 1950s recordings by Viennese-born virtuoso Alfred Brendel include Liszt's Mephisto Waltz and Sonata in B Minor, Brahms's Hungarian Dances for two pianos (with Walter Klien), and more.

"A 1955 mono recital from Alfred Brendel obviously at the peak of his youthful form. We are given a strongly compelling account of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, worthy of comparison with Richter, and a colourful presentation of the 'Three movements' from Stravinsky's Petrushka."—Gramophone

"The recordings sound better than they ever did on LP…. He is fully equal to the virtuoso challenges of Stravinsky's 'Three Movements from Petrouchka' and various Liszt pieces…. The greatest surprise was a selection from Dvorak's 'Slavonic Dances,' which Brendel plays in the four-hand version…. These performances boast every quality of unbuttoned elan and rhythmic freedom."—Boston Globe

"There is not a cheap trick, quick fix or sleight-of-hand gimmick in his playing armoury, just an unparalleled compound of intelligence, fastidiousness, endlessly subtle characterisation, supreme intellectual command, absolute structural mastery."—Glasgow Herald
