Remastered from the original 1990 release these performances show Earl Wild at the top of his form. "One of the last torch-bearers of the pianist-Titans Rachmaninoff, Hofmann, and Busoni, makes his mark here. It’s an elegant inscription, of perfect dimension and clarity. The evenness of his mechanism is stunning. I think the keystone to this disc is the third Scherzo. The bell-like bass is stupendous."
