Shura Cherkassky (1911-1995) enjoyed a long career of over seventy years, rising to the forefront of internationally acclaimed concert pianists, first in America and, after 1961, in London, where he lived until his death. A pupil of the legendary Josef Hofmann at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, the highspots of his career for many remain his interpretations of the concertos of fellow Russian composers like Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. He is also classed alongside Horowitz and Rubinstein as a legendary and sensitive re-interpreter of the nineteenth-century Romantic repertory. Cherkassky with his phenomenal virtuosity, colour range, imagination and spontaneity made him the ideal Chopin interpreter. He never recorded the two Chopin Concertos commercially, so this is an important addition to his discography. Superbly remastered in excellent stereo sound.
 

                      **** - Excellent

Luca Ciammarughi - Musica magazine - April 2013


“...This is vintage Cherkassky; playing to charm the birds out of the trees”
 
Gramophone Magazine - March 2013

"...This release is a delight. Only Zimerman, Pletnev and Argerich play with such wonderful expressive licence today, and as such it is a marvellous (and salutary) reminder of what was once the norm in playing the piano."
