EARLY RECORDINGS (1974-1981)

The CD Early Recordings was issued on the occasion of my fiftieth birthday. Tracks 1-15 are live recordings, made during the Public Presentation on the occasion of my being awarded the Prix d’Excellence on 19 November 1974 in the Bach-zaal in Amsterdam (Debussy, Dallapiccola, Chopin, Liszt). The other compositions were recorded in 1978 and 1979 in AVRO Studio 9 in Hilversum: works by Messiaen, Liszt and Orthel.

REVIEWS
“Albert Brussee was a highly promising talent, as may be heard on a recently released compact disc. (…) The sonorous pianistics are striking, as is Brussee’s feeling for rhythm and colour: qualities apparent not only in works by Dallapiccola and Orthel, but also in interpretations of Debussy: a poetic Reflects dans l’eau and a sparkling performance of Feux d’artifice. Brussee excels also in a number of works by Liszt, with as high point a moving rendition of Funérailles.”
