The Schubert and Brahms recordings by Murray Perahia are now collected on 8 albums. His versions of the three late Schubert sonatas released in 2003 were the top choice for these works in BBC Radio 3’s Building a Library. Gramophone likened his playing here to “a tree just opening from bud in the radiance of spring … Perahia’s limpid delicacy constantly reminding us of his dedication to Mozart”. In solo Brahms – the F minor Sonata, Handel Variations and late piano pieces – Gramophone lauded Perahia’s “superfine musical intelligence and technique”. Murray Perahia the collaborative pianist is showcased in Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau’s 1990 recording (his seventh) of Schubert’s Winterreise (“A gripping performance of mature reflection, aided by Perahia’s positive, interactive playing” – BBC Music Magazine); Brahms’s “Haydn Variations” for piano four hands partnered in 1987 by Sir Georg Solti (“… so communicative, so warmly sympathetic, so alive and spontaneous” – Gramophone); and the Brahms G minor Piano Quartet from 1986 with the Amadeus Quartet (“Wild and urgent … brims with energy and immediacy … Perahia emerges as a powerful, passionate Brahmsian” – Gramophone).CD 1Schubert: Piano Sonata in C minor D 958Piano Sonata in A major D 959​​​​​​​CD 2Schubert: Piano Sonata in B-flat major D 960CD3Schubert: Piano Sonata in A major D 959Fantasia for Piano Duet in F minor D 940Radu Lupu pianoCD 4Schubert: 4 Impromptus D 8994 Impromptus D 935CD5Schubert: Winterreise D 911Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau baritoneCD 6Brahms: Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor op. 5Rhapsody in E-flat major op. 119/4Capriccio in B minor op. 76/2Intermezzo in E-flat minor op. 118/6Rhapsody in B minor op. 79/1CD 7Brahms: Variations and Fugue in B-flat majoron a Theme by Handel op. 242 Rhapsodies op. 79 · 6 Piano Pieces op. 1184 Piano Pieces op. 119CD 8Brahms: Variations for 2 Pianos in B-flat majoron a Theme by Joseph Haydn op. 56bSir Georg Solti pianoQuartet for Piano and Strings No. 1 in G minor op. 25Amadeus Quartet
