LEGENDS OF THE PIANO - Acoustic Recordings 1901-1924

This collection features some of the greatest composers ever to record, along with disciples playing pieces by their masters. The disciples fall largely into two main ‘schools’: the Chopin/Schumann axis and the Liszt/Leschetizky group, offering piquant contrast in the piano styles that survived in the playing of Artur Rubinstein and Vladimir Horowitz, respectively. The recordings were selected for performance quality as well as historical and sonic considerations.
