Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir Clifford Curzon (1907-1982) was not only a very great pianist but also a famously fastidious one... He made a justly celebrated recording of [K 491] for Decca in 1968 with the LSO and Kertész.

-----

This is a very short review for one very good reason: there’s nothing at all that I dislike about these recordings. I revisited No.23 in particular for comparison with the Beulah Extra download of the Denis Matthews recording of No.23 and, much as I like and recommend that version, still sounding well in Beulah’s transfer, despite its age, Curzon has to be my benchmark for this work...
