Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Though neither a super virtuoso like Horowitz nor a super romantic like Rubinstein, Backhaus had the integrity, insight, and sheer strength of character to dig deep into his chosen repertoire and turn in performances that radiate what for want of a better word could be called genius... The Moonlight Sonata that opens the recital is quick but evocative in the opening Adagio sostenuto, poised and charming in the central Allegretto, and wild and wooly in the closing Presto agitato. Even better is the Hammerklavier, a massive and monumental account, that struggles and triumphs in a blazing Fugue as magnificent as the best ever recorded." -All Music Guide
