Notes & Reviews:

This set offers a five-concerto collection of recordings by the Polish-American piano virtuoso, Artur Balsam (1906-1994). Culled from recordings released on Concert Hall Society LPs in the early 1950s, this 2-CD release fetures sonic restoration and mastering by Grammy-winning engineer, Adam Abeshouse, a collection of rare Balsam photographs, a detailed essay on Balsam by Dan Berlinghoff, and five truly wonderful performances. Artur Balsam left a large legacy of solo piano and concerto recordings, but because nearly all were released before the advent of the CD, his performances are all but unknown to an entire generation of enthusiasts. With the help of the Foundation and estate bearing his name, Bridge Records has restored and released this exceptional recording.
