Chopin: Etudes Opp. 10, 25 - Perahia      (1 of 7 found this review helpful)

A dissapointing SACD - I'm not too overly impressed with the performance and the sound quality is perhaps even worst (It just lacks in many ways - mostly in definition).

This is simply one of the finest SACD's I've ever heard produced. Brendel is truely one of the greatest living pianist.
