PADEREWSKI, Ignacy Jan: Victor Recordings (selections) (1914-1941)

Ignacy Jan Paderewski enthralled the world with his artistry for more than half a century. Immensely popular as a recitalist (he played in Madison Square Garden to 20,000 people), he came to recording as late as 1911, leaving an important legacy. These recordings, mostly from the 1920s and some unpublished on 78rpm, show Paderewski as a uniquely eloquent interpreter of Beethoven, his compatriot Chopin, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt, Wagner, Rachmaninov, Debussy and his own compositions. Whether performing in grand Romantic style, with scintillating virtuosity yet many wonderful subtleties, or as if confiding intimate secrets, Paderewski possessed what Henry James memorably described as “exhilarating goodness”.
