This is a dramatically beautiful piano recording, from a live, unedited concert performance. It was engineered by the late Doug Sax (1936-2015). Sax was known for his minimalist, classical approach to recording, with the emphasis on critical microphone placement in a fine acoustical environment.
The repertoire consists of a cornerstone work for piano by the young Johannes Brahms: the Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Handel's Air in B flat with Variations, and the Mazurka in A minor (Op. 17, No. 4) by Chopin.
I regard this recording as producing just about the most realistic piano sound I have heard on a record.
