Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Culled from live performances January 15-16, 1956, in the Hamburg Musikhalle - as Johansen approached his 50th birthday - Busoni's Piano Concerto is caught in a spontaneous sweep beginning to end... Schmidt-Isserstedt and his forces, while evidently well rehearsed, have seized the moment and are hand-ion-glove with the soloist's soaring trajectory. Garlanded in tape hiss and captured in flat, boxy/tubby mono - not nearly as distracting to hear as to read about - this performance wings through a half-century with remarkable detail, balance, and clarity. The ear adjusts, caught by an irresistible lan. A prime document of Busoniana, then, but something more - a rare conjunction of genius under favoring stars." -Fanfare
