Brendel Plays and Introduces Schubert – 5 DVD Set

Alfred Brendel is an outstanding modern exponent of Schubert’s piano music. He is capable of bringing not only the verve of this music but also its poetic intensity and intellectual depth to life with a special vibrancy. In this unique collection – a 5 DVD box (on Naxos) at a very attractive price – he plays all of Schubert’s major works for keyboard and introduces each piece, throwing light on its compositional substance and at the same time revealing his own highly personal relationship with these masterpieces of Romantic music.

Hello!! Here are three more Alkan presentations for you, live in concert: "Song of the Madwoman on the Seashore" from Preludes Op. 31, and Allegro Barbaro from 12 Etudes in all the Major Keys, Op. 35.



Also, I am a conducting student, so I asked eight of my talented friends to help me put together a performance of Alkan's most bizarre and humorous composition, Funeral March on the Death of a Parrot for SATB voices, three oboes, and bassoon. Here is a video of that, if you are interested.

Very nice, and a good combination of pieces. I've in fact never head the Funeral March before, though I seem to recall Raymond Lewenthal sang bass on a recording of it!

Thanks for these!

Thanks for these!

He sang the bass mini-recit after the double-reed introduction, and he did it down an octave! But he had a chorus of opera singers, and the basses in the opera chorus sang the bass line. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
