Sviatoslav Richter’s comment that Hungarian-born Annie Fischer (1914–1995) was ‘a great artist imbued with a spirit of greatness and genuine profundity’ is just a sign of the esteem in which her fellow musicians held her. Curiously, of all the mid-century pianists, she seems to have been among the least recorded due to her profound dislike of the studio.  Annie Fischer’s ‘unerring awareness’ (David Threasher) of the shifting moods in the Schumann Piano Concerto has been caught in wonderful sound by the WDR engineers in this ‘live’ recording which has never been issued before. In the two Beethoven works, ‘she is powerfully authoritative’ (David Threasher). Both these ‘live’ recordings are available for this first time on this release.   All these recordings are great additions to her relatively small discography.
 

 “Throughout, she adhors trickery of any kind...a quality demonstrated with superb authority in the Eroica Variations.   Here, exuberance and a certain classical sobriety combine to produce playing with an unfaltering ring of truth.”

 
Gramophone magazine - June 2012

"...A chance to hear Annie Fischer, not always at her happiest in the studio, in truly great form in live broadcasts."
