1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mark Too VINE VOICE on 7 Aug. 2006
Format: Audio CD
This set and the three companion volumes come from the first of Alfred Brendel's three Beethoven cycles. The playing is outstanding - for my money even better than his excellent cycles from the 70s and 90s. Brendel's strength is his ability to create genuine, deeply thought, personal interpretations, without ever going into wilfulness or eccentricity.

The downside? Two things. The recording (analogue, from the 60s), is aceptable rather than great; if digital, crystal clarity is a must this isn't for you. And after listening to this set for a couple of years, I realised that two sonatas, 4 & 20, are missing...!

That said, the playing is the equal of any of the better known, more widely recommended cycles. I love these sonatas, and I've listened to most of the 'great' recordings; but I keep coming back to this set. And when you consider that in amazon marketplace you can buy the four volumes for less than four pounds each, this has to be the ultimate bargain.

Brendel and Beethoven 2 Nov. 2006
By K. M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Brendel and Beethoven, somehow the names just fit together. This cd on Vox, was originally part of the famed Vox Box series and in this case the Vox Box contained the complete Beethoven Sonatas. It won a Grand Prix de Disc when it was first released. It was a worthy recipient. Although Brendel has re-recorded the sonatas for the Philips label, this set has a freshness and vitality about it, an excitement of discovery, something missing from the Philips set. Highly recommended

Very strait forward and well executed 5 April 2008
By Peter Chordas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many consider Alfred Brendel to be one of the greatest interpreters of Beethoven's piano music. His level of accomplishment is truly amazing when you consider that he has had very little formal education and is primarily self-taught.

Only the last 3 volumes of this 4 volume set address this very nice collection of the entire piano sonatas by Beethoven, played by Brendel, and well worth owning. My reasoning for only giving 4 stars is that, although I greatly enjoy and appreciate his playing, I have personal favorites of these played by others which are more endearing to my personal taste. But overall, these pieces are beautifully performed. He is consistently good and as a complete set, I would give them a 5 star. I think you would be hard pressed to find any better.

ONE OF THE BEST 10 Oct. 2006
By T. Bellows - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One man's viewpoint: I always love Brendel's light, agile touch. Yet there's a passion here that's hard to describe. Kind of sneaks up on you. He articulates every note cleanly in these pieces too. Amazing. And ALL the LVB sonatas have something wonderful to offer. Suggest you buy all four of AB's VOX renderings. And his Diabelli's. Then I'd suggest Arrau and O'Conor. All rewarding!

It's reasonably good 30 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A resaonably good introduction to what Beethoven's piano sonatas are all about; but keep in mind that there are better pieces. As far as music goes, it is undoubtably enjoyable.
