"Here's one of those pianists whose individuality historical reissues like this make you wish today's tigers had more of.
Levitski died at age 42 in 1941, during a heralded international career built around a smallish repertoire heavy with miniatures and a recording career of just fifty-three published 78rpm sides. He had a pearly tone, octaves to rival Horowitz's and a finely chiseled Romantic style that prompted author and piano maven Abram Chasins to call him ``pure radiance.'' No argument, in this set of acoustic and electrical recordings made between 1923 and 1933.
Remarkable restorations by Ward Marston, the electrical ones especially. Two more volumes of Levitzki are promised."
