“A fine strong performance of Beethoven’s most formidable sonata from Brendel…concentration and sense of drama are most striking.. his later recordings sometimes have not quite the fire and spontaneity that marked his invigorating Vox Vienna recordings…sound impressively full and present” (c) Penguin Guide
