    Classic BBC Proms (5 DVDs)

    £ 39.99

    This box set embraces five historic performances from the BBC Proms by some of the world’s greatest artists. From the very first season of Promenade Concerts in 1895, the Proms has championed the finest classical music. This unmissable anthology features the legendary partnership of Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in music by Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Debussy, and Garrick Ohlsson’s impassioned account of Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto. Gennadi Rozhdestvensky and Yuri Temirkanov lead two deeply Russian programmes, and characteristic Viennese waltzes – including The Blue Danube – are executed with exuberance, good humour and panache by three conductors well suited to the genre.

  2. Georges Cziffra
    Legacy

    Georges Cziffra

    £ 9.99

    This 1955 recital, only Cziffra’s second studio recording is totally free from eccentricity and represents Cziffra at his best. It features miniatures (CPE Bach, Scarlatti and Couperin) as well as the Liszt war horses which Cziffra became famous for. The two bonus tracks come from a 1959 recital in Turin, which show off Cziffra’s dazzling technique. The Bach arr. Liszt: Fantasy & Fugue, like the rest of the CD, has never appeared on CD before. It is extremely rare having been remastered from a collector's LP using ICA’s Ambient mastering Process. More details

  3. Georges Cziffra
    Legacy

    Georges Cziffra

    £ 9.99

    Hungarian born György Cziffra (1921-94) was one of the most celebrated and individual piano virtuosos of the postwar decades in Europe, especially noted for his powers of improvisation and as a Liszt pianist. In 1950 Cziffra was arrested after he attempted to escape from Hungary's Soviet sponsored regime and was severely tortured. After his release in 1953, Cziffra started to record for the Qualiton and Supraphon labels (his debut is on ICAC 5008). In 1956 Cziffra fled to Vienna making his debut there with outstanding success. These live recordings have never been issued commercially before. The Grieg Concerto is typical of Cziffra's 'startling and mercurial quality' while the Liszt Concerto and Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Themes is very much in the style which Liszt 'loved to tease and astonish his adoring audiences'. (Bryce Morrison). After one recital in London, The Daily Telegraph said the audience 'witnessed feats of piano playing... More details

  4. Julius Katchen
    Legacy

    Julius Katchen

    £ 9.99

    The American pianist Julius Katchen was a child prodigy who at age 11 performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Ormandy. In 1946 Katchen toured Europe, settling in Paris in late 1947 and became a frequent performer on the European concert platform. Katchen made a major study of Brahms during his career and this 1967 live broadcast of Brahms Piano Concerto No.1, with the distinguished German conductor Rudolf Kempe, reflects his deep understanding of this composer. This recording gives the collector the rare opportunity of hearing Katchen ‘live’ in comparison to his studio account made much earlier in 1959.More details
