I have been on the lookout for this recording, partly because Brendel plays Beethoven so well, and partly because some of the bagatelles and the rondo in c were compositions I learnt many years ago. Brendel is such a consummate artist, the simplicity of his playing gives one the impression they are easy to play - not the case if one wishes to play them well! Apart from the sheer pleasure of hearing these piano pieces, this is also a terrific way to brush up on ones piano skills,technique and interpretation - a most positive way to assist ones enjoyment. If you are not a pianist, then sit back and let the melodious sounds wash over you and help you to chill out.

Brendel succeeds in taking Beethoven's bagatelles to new levels -the precision of his playing and the complexity of sound he extracts from the instrument make this CD a must for every piano enthusiast.

these are typically thoughtful and sensitive interpretations by Maestro Brendel - these recordings will continue to give pleasure for all time.

If anyone can raise the profile of these less well-known pieces by Beethoven, it must be one of the most widely-respected intepreters of that composer's piano works. And sure enough, the characteristic limpidity of Brendel adds a special lustre to these little jewels.

The Philips label is usually the sign of a first-class recording, and that is certainly the case here.
