Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is yet another GENUIN CD with Paul Badura-Skoda which truly catches the ear: After unearthing treasures which have featured the outstanding concert pianist primarily as a soloist and in performances with orchestra, now for the second time a release highlights his chamber music artistry. And what a group of illustrious chamber music partners are to be heard on this set of four CDs: Foremost among them, David Oistrakh (as in the prize-winning GENUIN duo CD), but also Wolfgang Schneiderhan, Boris Pergamentschikov and the Küchl String Quartet. Great chamber music (Brahms, Mozart, Dvo?ák, among others), played by legends of a past decades together with one of the greatest pianists of our time.
