Notes & Reviews:

A "pianist's pianist" in the truest sense, Rudolf Serkin has inspired generations of musicians with the heroic purity and integrity of his playing. A self-effacing master who was perhaps the temperamental opposite of his contemporary Vladimir Horowitz, Serkin set new standards in the interpretation of Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert - crystalline in their clarity, with a laser-like focus and unforgettable intensity.
