Piggybacking on Alf’s recent Brendel posts..

For those not familiar with Brendel, his mastery of the keyboard is at a level that few will ever be able to reach. Here, though back in 1982, Brendel has already “owned” the works, playing each Mozart work with fluidity, precision, and smooth sonority. Brendel’s playing is a delight, and that is true regardless of how many other recordings you might have of the Mozart piano concertos.

The recording here by Philips is very good, and the trademark smooth and rich Philips recording characteristics are in full play. It is unlikely you’ll have much, if any at all, issues with the technical aspects of the recording itself.

  1. Hey Steve,
    very good sound. I took down the 24/96 and it is beautiful!
    Mozart is non pareil, and Brendel is flawless; Marriner and SMITF are stunningly meticulous.
    Thanks to you and Jean Luc.

  2. The Brendel-Marriner set is included in the Philips complete Mozart edition. It is great to have them in vinyl sound. I will be hearing them a lot more than I did the CD FLACs.

    Thank you!!!

  3. Maybe you know. Why is Radu Lupu preforming the cadenza in (tracks 4 – 6)? I never heard of this practice. Thank you for your marvelous rips. I am a big fan of Mozart piano concertos. Right now I am into Mozart string quartets… especially the Haydn set. If you ever get a hold of Janet Baker singing… love her too. Thank you,

  4. Just got to this the other day; while piano performances are usually not my preference, this was very pleasing to my ears. Wonderful rip Steve and thank you once more to, Jean-Luc whos collection seems thankfully never ending.
    Happy New Year to you both!
