Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Arch-Romantic Robert Schumann's (1810-1856) first two-dozen or so opuses feature some of the finest solo piano compositions of the era. Included among these are the works on this two-disc set of WWII-era recordings by the great yet controversial Franco-German pianist Walter Gieseking (1895-1956). Most noted for his sublime pedal technique and contrapuntal clarity, his performances of Debussy, Ravel and the modernists were often revelatory and are still considered benchmark interpretations.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
His sensitivity and grace reinforces his legendary stature. He can really elongate a phrase, leading to some lovely moments in Kreisleriana 2. Part 5 shows the nimbleness and lightness of touch that is a signature of Gieseking's approach. Piano Sonata 1 is beautifully played. He conveys great emotions with a huge range of sounds. He rarely gives a sense of strain or tension, instead cultivating the incredible fluidity that serves him well in his approach to Debussy. The closing 'Traumerei' is especially delicate and sensitive.
