Brendel's Departure

Unless you've been completely out of the loop, you no doubt already know that the great Alfred Brendel gave his last public performance this month.
And the Guardian has a splendid review of it for those of us who couldn't be there.

Never having heard Brendel live, I know his playing only thru his recordings. Yes, I love his richly praised Beethoven and Schubert recordings. But it's his early recordings, especially of Liszt, that
I enjoy the most. You can find some of the very best of it here.
