Schubert’s Impromptu Op. 90 No. 3

Alfred Brendel is one of my favourite pianists. Although he never changes a note or any other indication that I’ve ever heard, he still brings everything he plays to vivid life. I still treasure his 1970s recording of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with Heinz Wallberg and the Vienna Pro Musica.

He said once that he never played anything the same way twice.
