Alfred Brendel

Recommended Posts

I recently found a number of essays by Alfred Brendel downloadable from here.


Okay, these essays are not about organs, but I thought this was such an interesting link that it was worth sharing here. Moreover, Brendel does touch on issues which will have a resonance with organists:

  • Adjusting to different instruments.
  • Usefulness of knowing what goes on “under the bonnet” (he supports the idea an examination in organ building for organ students).
  • The extent to which an historically “authentic” sound is possible or desirable.
  • The relative merits of the piano verson and the organ version of Liszt’s “Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen”.
