5.0 out of 5 stars The best after......... 21 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
I had already the complete piano sonatas recorded by Daniel Barenboim for DG, a very good one but I was not completely satisfied, particularly for the latest opus. I'm very enjoyed by this remake of Alfred Brendel, which is from my point of you better than his other version for the same label (Brendel II). But despite of that, I had a deception hearing the opus 109 "Hammerklavier" recorded live, and also the opus 111. For the "Hammerklavier" Emil Gilels (DG) is clearly fantastic! For the opus 111, there's two outstanding recordings: Claudio Arrau (Philips not reissued by Decca London, a real shame!!!), and Rudolf Serkin recorded live in Vienna (DG with op.109 & 110). For the other sonatas Brendel is at his best, and it's a great musical pleasure. Just a word for the high technical quality of this box set: the unforgetable Philips sound for piano recordings!... I've quoted 5 stars because 4,5 is not possible and 4 wouldn't be enough. For a 5 stars quotation, above all there's Claudio Arrau complete recording, but for me everyone who like Beethoven's piano sonatas must have both Brendel and Arrau. Sorry for my poor english: I'm not British!...

5.0 out of 5 stars My reference set. 14 Aug 2011
By John S
This cycle is absolutely wonderful. Brendel's staggering command of the instrument combined with his wonderful imagination means there are times when I feel I can hear sounds I've never heard before -somehow it just seems to glow. In spite of the fact that every note in this set has the unmistakable Brendel magic, I always feel I'm just hearing Beethoven and not the pianist. Only the greatest artists can create such an illusion.

Owing to the consistent excellence throughout this set, it's the one I would recommend to anyone looking for a reference edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars beethoven the intimate 20 Nov 2012
By cherami

Beethoven is arguably the greatest of them all. Brendel is one of the finest of modern pianists. These discs are an exploration in depth of some of the greatest, if not the greatest, piano masterpieces of the 19th century by a master. Sometimes I want to listen to Schnabel (a must for all true lovers of music) who seems to uncover depths others don't, sometimes I want to listen to Kovacevich who finds poetry that others miss and sometimes I want to listen to Brendel for the joy of consummate musicianship. None is better than the others but Brendel is one of the greats and the sonatas are the greatest and the more versions one has the better. No one who listens to this will be disappointed. A superb coffret.
