  1. Annie Fischer
    Legacy

    Annie Fischer

    £ 9.99

    Sviatoslav Richter said that that Hungarian born Annie Fischer was 'a great artist imbued with a spirit of greatness and genuine profundity' while Pollini felt her playing contained 'a childlike simplicity, immediacy and wonder'.Compared to her peers, she seems to have been among the the least recorded due to her dislike of the studio. David Threasher in his booklet notes remarked that Fischer had 'unerring awareness' of the shifting moods in this 1958 live recording of Schumann's Piano Concerto and was 'powerfully authoriative' in the two Beethoven Sonatas from 1957. None of these WDR performances have been published before. More details

From 1992 to 2002 Pappano was music director of La Monnaie, the Belgian Royal Opera House. In 2002, he was named music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, his current contract there running to 2017. Pappano has also been principal guest conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and in 2005 became music director of the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.Pappano’s recordings have been hailed as “a magnificent achievement, of rare accomplishment” (Gramophone), “unmissable” (The Sunday Times), “a triumph” (BBC Radio 3); they have received awards including Classic BRIT, ECHO Klassik, BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone...

  5. Emil Gilels
    Legacy

    Emil Gilels

    £ 9.99

    Emil Gilels is regarded by many as one of the most significant pianists of the twentieth century and is universally admired for his superb technical control and burnished tone. This BBC recording in stereo of his 1979 Abbotsholme recital features the Russian pianist in unusual and seldom-performed repertoire such as Schumann’s Four Klavierstücke, the Brahms Ballades, Chopin's Polonaise No.2 and Sonata No.3, works he performed only a handful of times in the later stages of his career. This is an exceptionally rare CD and presents the great Russian pianist at his best in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. A beautifully played encore – Mozart’s D minor Fantasy K397 – completes this well-filled 80+ minute-disc. More details

  9. Guido Cantelli
    Legacy

    Guido Cantelli

    £ 9.99

    The extraordinarily gifted Guido Cantelli (1920-56) was invited by Toscanini, who held him in the highest regard to be a guest conductor with the NBC orchestra in New York. From 1949 each year, Cantelli conducted the NBC, the New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony orchestras. In 1950, he was at the Edinburgh Festival and in 1951 Lucerne, Salzburg and Venice Festivals. He started recording with the Philharmonia Orchestra for EMI but was tragically killed in an air crash in Paris in 1956. Walter Legge, EMI's producer, wrote, 'no other conductor in the history of the art has established, so early in life, so wide a fame.' While studio recordings validate Legge's assertion, none quite captured the incandescence of his live performances. These important and very rare 'live' recordings featuring the Philharmonia Orchestra derive from the Music Preserved archive and have never been released before. The Glasgow Herald stated that...

  10. 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

  11. Kurt Sanderling
    Legacy

    Kurt Sanderling

    £ 16.50

    Known for enjoying live performances and having an affinity for late Mahler, Sanderling’s reading of Das Lied von der Erde is inherently musical. Mitchinson’s ‘firm, heroic tone’ is ideal for this role, with the BBC Philharmonic providing a sympathetic accompaniment. Schumann’s Fourth Symphony makes an excellent filler.The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.More details

  12. Sviatoslav Richter
    Legacy

    Sviatoslav Richter

    £ 9.99

    This rare June 1967 live broadcast recording makes it's first appearance on CD. The recital at the Royal Festival Hall very much reflects the pianist's personal taste containing the infrequently played Haydn Sonata No.62 and Weber's Sonata No.3 together with the Schumann Novelettes with the more popular additions of Chopin and Debussy. Richter declared 'my principle is to play only works that I really love and not just those that are currently accepted'. ICA's Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere in the Royal Festival Hall perfectly. More details

  13. Vladimir Ashkenazy
    Legacy

    Vladimir Ashkenazy

    £ 16.50

    The BBC films on this DVD showcase Vladimir Ashkenazy at the height of his powers in a uniquely small-scale and intimate setting. Ashkenazy has said that his ‘aim is to be a servant to bring music to life’, and he performs with characteristic humility here in wonderfully subtle accounts of piano works by Schubert and Schumann, highlighting the beauty and poetry of these early-Romantic masterpieces.
