Notes & Reviews:

This exciting release presents the Polish born pianist Artur Balsam (1904-1994) in concert performances given during the latter part of the great artist's career. Balsam's intense musicality and his formidable technique remained with him to the end of his life and these recordings, crowned by a stunning account of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, show him deepening his art to the end.
