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).
