Notes & Reviews:

APR’s fourth volume of Alfred Cortot completes their survey of post-war recordings that the pianist made for EMI in the UK. These are the first of his recordings on the then-new medium of magnetic tape. Tape gave the artist new freedom, as he was not restricted to the length of a 78rpm side for each take, and Cortot tackled much of his ‘big’ repertoire again. Sadly, by this time his failing health meant that many works remained unissued as they did not meet the standards of his earlier magnificent versions, however some old warhorses did stand the test of time.
