Notes & Reviews:

Rudolf Firkusny was one of the great concert pianists of this century, but also one of the last links to the most important figures in Czech history from the latter part of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. His immediate success brought him to the attention of Artur Schnabel with whom he worked on the interpretation of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Chopin and Schumann. Firkusny almost single-handedly resurrected the Dvorak Piano Concerto with the help of George Szell and Sir Thomas Beecham. This disc marks his debut on BBC Legends. All the tapes are stereo and sourced from the BBC Archives.
