Since Brahms didn't write a huge amount of piano music, it's not surprising that a number of pianists have recorded his complete solo piano works, most prominently the late Julius Katchen. Brilliant's anonymous producer used five different pianists, Kamerhan Turan, from Turkey, plays the First Piano Sonata and the Op. 4 Scherzo with fluency to spare and strong tone. Karin Lechner plays the Waltzes, Op. 39, with charm and grace. The best known pianist of the bunch, Helene Grimaud, surprisingly provides the only disappointment of the set. She powers her way through the Second and Third Sonatas (apparently not the same version of the Third issued by Denon) with plenty of musicianship and technique, but there are moments when her tone turns unpleasantly glittery. The discovery of the set for this listener is Wolfram Schmitt-Leonardy, who plays two discs of variations. Even in the super-difficult Paganini and Handel sets he is completely in control and his sound never turns hard. Hakon Austbo, whom I know for his Messian recordings on Naxos, plays the five sets of short pieces, including some of Brahms's greatest music. He is a little mild for my taste in the Rhapsodies, Op. 79, but otherwise plays with beautiful sound and comprehension. Not quite in Kempff's league but close enough to be worth hearing. If available at Brilliant's usual bargain prices this set is highly recommendable.
