Beethoven: Diabelli Variations, Op. 120 - Alfred Brendel on 180g LP
An exclusive artist for the Philips label since 1969, Alfred Brendel's discography is now among the most extensive of any pianist, reflecting a repertoire of solo, chamber and orchestral works by the major composers from the central European tradition from Bach through to Schoenberg.
In January 2016, Decca will celebrate Brendel's artistic achievements by releasing his complete Philips recordings in a single 114 CD set for the first time. In addition, Decca will proudly present 4 iconic Brendel albums from the analog era on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. Presented with original artwork and pressed at optimal GmbH, each release has been carefully mastered from original analog sources at Abbey Road Studios. Every effort has been made to faithfully reproduce the original intentions of the musicians and recording engineers.
"Beethoven's Diabelli Variations in particular can rarely have received a reading that is at once so magisterial and assured yet so natural and unassuming. The fruit of years of experience, every bar is touched with character and individuality while remaining true to Beethoven's monumental spirit." - Gramophone Magazine
