Notes & Reviews:

These digital recordings are now presented as a box set for the first time and are an invaluable collection of the composer's most important keyboard works, performed by one of the greatest pianists of this generation.

Few pianists have explored and recorded such a wealth of keyboard literature as Vladimir Ashkenazy. During an association with Decca which stretches back almost 40 years now, Ashkenazy has completed cycles of some of the most important concertos (Mozart, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Bartók and Rachmaninov), as well as an extensive amount of solo literature. Two of the greatest figures in 19th-century piano music are Chopin and Schumann, and music by both composers has featured, and continues to feature, in Ashkenazy's recitals. He has recorded almost all of Chopin solo works and during the years 1984-95 undertook a major survey of Schumann's solo literature (some works including the Sinfonische Etüden, Fantasie, Kreisleriana and Humoreske) Ashkenazy had recorded earlier in his career). These digital recordings are now presented as a box set for the first time and are an invaluable collection of the composer's most important keyboard works, performed by one of the greatest pianists of his ge
