Notes & Reviews:

This new set from Tahra dedicated to the great Austrian pianist and teacher Friedrich Wuhrer is the first release in a new series called "Back from the Shadows," the aim of which is to give a second life to recordings by artists that are unjustly forgotten. Wuhrer was a close associate of and advocate for composer Franz Schmidt. He also was a champion of the second Viennese school and other composers of the early 20th century. His recorded legacy, however, centers around German romantic literature, particularly the music of Franz Schubert. This set is entirely dedicated to Beethoven and includes the complete piano concertos, the triple concerto and the last three piano sonatas.
