Notes & Reviews:

Alexis Weissenberg was one of the most important pianists of the 20th century. Presented here are early recordings from three rare LPs made when he was still quite young (1949 - 1955) and was known as Sigi Weissenberg. He is considered a true legend for his supreme piano artistry.
