A Portrait of Alfred Brendel / Un portrait d’Alfred Brendel


For the past 40 years or so Alfred Brendel has been recognized as one of the greatest pianists of his generation. In his chosen repertoire - mostly Austrian and German composers from Mozart to Schoenberg, Brendel was masterly. He has a huge recorded legacy and has written about music with great insight. But sadly, the time has come. Brendel has retired from the concert platform. This video provides a glimpse into his personal and artistic life.

Alfred Brendel est reconnu depuis 40 ans comme l’un des plus grands pianistes de sa génération. Il était magistral dans son répertoire de compositeurs allemands et autrichiens de Mozart à Schönberg. Il a une riche carrière comme artiste et il est un essayiste d’une grande lucidité. Mais malheureusement, le temps est venu. Il est maintenant retiré de la scène de concert. Ce vidéoclip nous donne un aperçu dans sa vie privée et artistique.
