Kempff is as inspired in his recordings of these late Brahms piano pieces as in his more famous Beethoven sonatas. He gets to the heart of the music’s reflective but unsentimental remembrance of times past, capturing its variety of moods with individuality and superb clarity. The piano sound is clear and realistic. David Michaels
