Notes and Editorial Reviews

Clara Haskil performed twenty different piano concertos throughout her career. Curiously, she never played the Emperor Concerto, the Listz, Grieg, Tchaikovsky or Bartók concertos. The first Beethoven concerto that she performed was the third on 27 March 1922, with Ansermet (and on 18 December with Georgescu in Bucarest). She then performed the fourth concerto fifteen times from 6 February 1924 until 1950. She started playing the second concerto only from March 1954 onwards, in a tour that took her throughout Holland.
