Technically sound. A remarkably evocative recording.

Simon Crouch said:

A fine recording that might not catch the ear immediately, Brendel plays with his usual understated, perhaps coy, style. A significant plus is the inclusion of BWV 904 and BWV 922, rarely recorded repetoire (on the piano, at least).
