Notes & Reviews:

Pianist, scholar and pedagogue Paul Badura-Skoda may best be known to the music loving public at large as an exponent of the Viennese classics. In fact, Badura-Skoda’s lengthy career covers far more musical ground than he is usually given credit for, from his awesome teenage prowess as an accordion virtuoso to the flamenco-inspired flair he brought to Frank Martin’s Fantasie, a work written especially for Badura-Skoda. Chopin also figures in the pianist’s uncommonly large and wide-ranging discography of more than 200 releases, including the present 1971-5 studio recordings, all but one piece being released now for the first time. All works were recorded in Vienna on Bösendorfer Grand pianos.
