As part of the celebrations of Alfred Brendel’s 85th birthday, his collected Mozart solo recordings are presented for the first time on 7 CDs, featuring  the Mozart Piano Sonatas Brendel recorded between 1975 and 2008, along with other solo piano works.

Included are multiple recordings of several of the works (Sonatas 4, 8, and 11), offering the chance to explore and contrast this thoughtful pianist’s more recent interpretations.

Alfred Brendel is recognised the world over for his thoughtful fidelity to the compositional intent of composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Haydn and beyond.

“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

“... an artist of unmistakable sincerity, refined taste, and prodigious technique ...” - Fanfare, NJ

“It is remarkable how reliable Brendel is in his repertoire, always musical, always convincing, perfectly proportioned, immaculately played, by turns elegant, fluid, passionate as required but never flashy or egotistical.” - Sydney Morning Herald
