The Russian-born virtuoso Shura Cherkassky was undoubtedly one of the finest pianists of the 20th-century, admired not only for the magnificence of his playing but also for the wide range of his concert repertoire. On this important and valuable double-album, we concentrate on his noted recordings of 19th-century repertoire, which constitute music from the heart of his fondly-remembered performances. The recordings, all except the Liszt Liebestraum appeared on CD for the first time, have been excellently remastered and the playing-time of these albums is very generous - almost two hours and forty minutes of great musicianship.

 "...if you are a Cherkassky fan, as I am, this is not a set you will want to pass up. He was, quite simply, a magnificent artist."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - March/April 2014


 "... He [Cherkassy] was not a studio animal but the sessions found him in sparkling form and these performances are a delight ... the collection of shorter works and encores that make up this generous collection are to be treasured."

Guy Weatherall - Classical Music magazine - May 2013
