Notes & Reviews:

Chief conductor of the Orchestre de Paris, Eschenbach (b.1941) is one of today's foremost conductor-pianists. This fascinating retrospective focuses on his brilliant early career as a pianist, when his searching musical intelligence, formidable technique and enthusiastic engagement with the music of his, and our, time produced many recordings that have stood the test of time. Detailed booklet notes offer a personal account of the man including his troubled start to life as an orphan, without the power of speech, learning to love and communicate through music.
