Format: Audio CD
I mention perfection as this recording from 2004 is pretty close to it. Brahms was a meticulous composer, which never rendered his music dry or academic, lucky for us. The Finnish pianist (and winner of the 2003 Leeds Piano Competition) plays the Sonata with an impeccable sense of taste, for example allowing plenty of both meditative, expansive lyricism as well as fulsome expression in the long Andante Espressivo second movement. Siirala gives this lovely music room to breathe, and he`s aided no end by the ringingly superb recording.
The twenty minutes which make up the 16 Waltzes is like a delightful bonus. All but one are under two minutes long, the briefest being a mere 29 seconds. Brahms`s solo piano repertoire has been a delightful discovery for me in recent years, and this superlative, nicely balanced disc is a welcome addition to the many recordings that are available.
New young pianists can too often be hyped beyond their abilities, but this highly impressive Finn - 24 at the time of recording - sounds like the real thing.
Brahms`s great, and often quite offbeat sonata - as in the mesmerising fourth movement - is played here with freshness and gravitas. The Waltzes are played with the same attention to detail.
What more can one ask?
Recommended.

Strongly Recommended 20 Dec 2007
By Sir Butternut Longsword - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I strongly recommend this disc, along with Antti Siirala's disc on Naxos of Schubert Transcriptions(which was one of my favourite instrumental discs of several years ago. This was his follow-up and it is very impressive. Siirala avoids the popular pyrotechnic approach and instead focus on the pieces more meditative qualities. This doesnt replace my favourite version(Annie Fischer), but it is one of the finest recent releases in years, much better than the "major" Kissin release. Among modern pianists-his name is one you have probably never heard of-but start with Naxos transcriptions and you will be convinced.
Pianists under 40 You should know that you may not have heard of---
1. Yvgenny Sudbin
2. Leif Ove Ansdnes
3. Arcadi Volodos(he is a big name but well worth the pomp)
4. Alexandre Tharaud
5. Mykola Suk (older than 40)
6. Grigory Sokolov(best Rach 3 ever!!!!! from Proms--free on internet achive-also older than 40)
7. Jean Efflam Bouvouzet(spelling?)
9. Evgeni Koroliov
10. Steven Osborne(dont know age)
