Composed By – Johannes Brahms. Recorded At – Whitworth Hall, Manchester. Pressed By – Deluxe (7).
German pianist Wilhelm Kempff was casual enough in the studio - for all his long familiarity with the music of Beethoven, Kempff's two recordings of his complete sonatas are radically different in matters of tempo, texture, and interpretation - but in this live recording made at Whitworth Hall at Manchester University in October 1967, Kempff seems to be composing more. His opening Mozart F major Sonata, K. 332, is gracious in its outer movements and probing in its central Adagio; his central Schubert B flat major Sonata, D. 960, is heartrending in its opening movements and death-defying in its concluding movements; and his closing Beethoven A major Sonata, Op. 101, is vivacious in its even numbered movements and pensive in its odd numbered movements.

Wilhelm Walter Friedrich Kempff (25 November 1895 – 23 May 1991) was a German pianist and composer. Although his repertoire included Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and Brahms, Kempff was particularly well known for his interpretations of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert, recording the complete sonatas of both composers. He is considered to have been one of the chief exponents of the Germanic tradition during the 20th century and one of the greatest pianists of all time.
