"Despite the calm of the first movement of the Moonlight, there are more artfully inflected accompanying triplets than before, and less self-conscious phrasing and pointmaking in the Allegretto. The G major Sonata may be slighter than many of its fellows, but here I particularly enjoyed Brendel's response to the robust, rustic implications of the first movement's alla tedesca, also his total avoidance of sentimentality when "two ladies singing to the lute" anticipate Mendelssohn in the Andante. All the humour of the finale is summed up in the way he plays its last cadence. The tone is as warm as those earlier Vox/Turnabout discs were chilly. A choice record. J .0.
