Alfred Brendel exhibits a technical tour de force in his recording of Liszt’s Paganini Etudes. But it is the coupling, the rarely recorded Christmas Tree Suite, which is of historic interest as it was Brendel’s first ever recording , made at the age of 20. This release is essential listening for both lovers of Brendel and the romantic piano repertoire.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2012

“[in the Christmas Tree Suite] in particular, challenged by such unsettling ambiguity, Brendel plays with an imaginative insight and delicacy given to very few pianists. How hauntingly he conveys a work moving from innocence to experience...The recorded sound may be primitive but nothing can dim such musical quality”
