Schumann: Piano Concerto In A Minor And Weber: Konzertstuck - Alfred Brendel - Abbado - London Symphony Orchestra on 180g LP
Mastered from the Original Analogue Sources at Abbey Road Studios / Lacquers Cut by Sean Magee
In January 2016, Decca celebrated Alfred Brendel's artistic achievements by releasing his complete Philips recordings in a single 114CD set for the first time. Now, Decca proudly presents iconic Brendel albums from the analogue era on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
Presented with original artwork and pressed at optimal GmbH, each release has been carefully mastered from original analogue sources at Abbey Road Studios with lacquers cut by Sean Magee. This LP includes Brendel, Claudio Abbado and the London Symphony Orchestra's performances of Schumann's Piano Concerto In A Minor And Weber's Konzertstuck.
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.
"If I belong to a tradition it is a tradition that makes the masterpiece tell the performer what he should do and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the composer what he ought to have composed." - Alfred Brendel
