Wonderfully Appropriate Interpretations
on 3 December 2012
Differences of opinion make the world go around, but I cannot fathom some of the poor reviews of this excellent set. Schiff here produces what I think he believes the composer intended, a thoughtful balanced melodic interpretation. OK you may prefer Brendel's more at times heavy handed style or go with Uchida's super occasionally overblown flow, but this set gives you the best all round knowledge and understanding of the work. The Camerata Academica Salzburg, under Vegh's outstanding direction, are the perfect vehicle for Schiff's style.
