Product Description

Brendel Edition (35 CD)
The complete Vox, Turnabout and Vanguard solo recordings

Alfred Brendel retires this year from public performance. He will give his last recital in December at Vienna’s Musikverein, in the city where he came to prominence over half a century ago. The recordings he made then for young American labels established in the wake of the Second World War, harnessing young talent in classic repertoire, have stood the test of time.
They put down a marker for the music that Brendel would come almost to ‘own’ in the eyes of the piano-music-loving public: the Beethoven concertos and sonatas, Mozart concertos, Schubert, Liszt and Schoenberg.
He would later bring deepening insights to the core of the Austro-German repertoire that was his mainstay, but these early recordings are of far more than merely historical value: they are the first, impetuous explorations of a true keyboard lion.
Thus there is also music we don’t associate with Brendel, and to which he chose not to return, especially from Russia: Balakirev, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev and Stravinsky. In sum, and at a specially reduced price, this is essential listening for anyone interested in piano music and in the career of one of the greatest living pianists.

Many of these performances have scarcely been available on CD: this is the first time they have been gathered together as a set Extensive booklet notes by pianophile Ates Orga, including a conversation piece with Brendel (Brilliant Classics)

 モーツァルトについては、ブレンデルの旧...

投稿日:2012/01/06 (金)

 モーツァルトについては、ブレンデルの旧録音のほとんどを持っており、ベートーヴェンもかなりのレコードを持っています。購入動機は、第一にCD録音による改善、第二にその他の録音を網羅的に聴けるということでした。  第一に関しては、もともと録音ごとに状態の差がありましたが、その差が縮まることはありませんでした。モーツァルトの協奏曲では、ヤニグロによる9番などの録音の水準が素晴らしく続く協奏曲も期待しましたが、レコードと同じくヤニグロの録音に匹敵するものはありませんでした。私の大好きなピアノと木管五重奏もレコードでは納得のゆかない状態だったので、期待しましたが大きな改善はみられませんでした。演奏はいいのに残念です。ベートーヴェンも、録音については、おおよそモーツァルト同様といってよいでしょう。  しかしながら、第二の購入動機については満足しています。協奏曲のレコードしかもっていなかったリストをたっぷり聴け、シェーベルクなども聞けました。録音が格段に良くなったのではないとしても、この値段で、若きブレンデルの演奏を網羅的に聴けるのはお得だと思います。  ところで、高名な音楽評論家が、フィリップスのレコードのライナーノート(SFX-8684)で、「これといった特徴のない弾き方をしていたのと同じ人かと驚かされるくらい変わった」と書いているのに反発を感じていました。このようなイメージを持っている人には、ぜひこのCD、たとえばモーツァルトの22番の協奏曲を聴いてほしいと思います。

投稿日:2009/05/13 (水)

若きブレンデル!これはもっと注目されてよい。 フィリップス時代以降よりも、良い意味で若々しく音が輝いている。リズムの跳ね具合もグルダと対等、またはそれ以上。録音も適度なホールトーンを伴った美しいものが多く魅力的。期待以上のセットでした。

投稿日:2008/12/28 (日)

まずはよい復刻で感心しました。Brilliantという廉価レーベルは安かろう悪かろうという先入観を持っていましたが、過去様々な形でリリースされたCDよりも「ピアノ」らしい響きを聴くことができました。VOX音源の大抵のCDは特にピアノの音がペラペラになってしまう傾向が強く危惧しておりましたが、自分の杞憂に終わりました。さらに若きメータが伴奏した皇帝協奏曲や曲によっては後年のマリナーとの共演よりも瑞々しいピアノを聴くことができるモーツァルトの協奏曲などもLPの頃からデッドな乾いた感じの録音の印象が強かったものが響きのよいフレッ
