Notes & Reviews:

Despite the recording dates, these releases - deriving from 78s - preserve an impressive sound quality that Urania has chosen to maintain as close as possible to the original. The summa of the Brahmsian interpretation performed by the great German pianist is gathered in these two long lasting CDs. Here, in the period of his early maturity, Wilhelm Backhaus reaches heights of the great expressive tension and of well-balanced Hasburg classicism.
