Many many thanks to Jean-Luc for this fine gift
There’s no denying that Alfred Brendel is one of the most esteemed pianists of the past half century, and Beethoven was among his particular specialties. Brendel actually recorded the complete set of 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas three times during his career (he retired from public performances in 2008), and due to his expertise and command of the piano, as well as his interpretive skill of Beethoven’s works, won acclaim for each of these cycles. As with many “best of kind” performances, also this record is to set among the best Beethoven’s recordings you will ever get.

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.
