Notes & Reviews:

Long associated with the piano music of Bartók, whom he knew personally, Andor Foldes was one of the great virtuosi of the 20th century, as this rounded portrait of his DG recordings reveals-from Bach to Beethoven, as well as the Romantics Chopin and Liszt, and in his championing of American composers like Barber and Copland in his new homeland from 1939.
