Notes & Reviews:

Alexis Weissenberg's spectacular technique and individual way of playing have made a lasting impression on twentieth-century art of piano- playing. With these recordings of the 1960s from various broadcast archives he spans a repertoire from Bach over Brahms and Chopin to Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and Scriabin. The 'Petrushka Suite' included on this DVD deserves special attention as it had a very strong impact on Weissenberg's career. When Herbert von Karajan saw it in 1965, he immediately invited Weissenberg to play regularly with the Berlin Philharmonic, which consolidated the international career of the pianist.
