Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Franz Schubert: Piano Works 1822-1828 (Audio CD)
The previous reviewer seems to dislike all of the great Schubertians--Lupu,Schiff,and Brendel--very odd!If you have any liking for Schubert,you'll probably know that Brendel is second to none in this repertoire,and this is a great buy.I am familiar with all of the above artists,Kempff,etc,and believe Brendel to be at least as good,and if I'm honest,the best.Some think him overly intellectual--I say listen to his Mozart concerto no.9,compare it to any other reading(slow movt),AND YOU WILL FIND THIS TO BE THE MOST MOVING INTERPRETATION ON RECORD.Analytical,yes,a master interpreter has to be--but not the scrutinising nitpicker some would have you believe.
Buy this,never regret the action.

For me, nobody does justice to Franz Peter Schubert's beautifully sublime music for the piano any better than the brilliant Alfred Brendel.

And a man of taste ye be,Eli! I have a compulsion for Schubert,and although many heap praise on Paul Lewis these days,it seems to have passed them by that he was Brendel's pupil.He seems to get the plaudits sometimes denied the master,for some odd reason.
