Notes and Editorial Reviews

Already in his first decade as a CBS artist, pianist Murray Perahia was amassing a precious discography including Mozart (“a wonderful singing line and at the same time a sensuousness that is always tempered by spirituality” – Penguin Guide), Beethoven (“authority, finesse and poetry” – Penguin Guide), Chopin (“wonderfully poetic” – Gramophone), Schumann (“devotion, poetic sensitivity, scrupulous musician ship and pristine technique” – New York Times) and Mendelssohn, as well as an acclaimed LP of Bartók (“with an authority which has few peers” – BBC Music Magazine). Perahia’s complete analogue recordings have now been brought together for the first time in this exclusive collection of 15 remastered CDs.
