Notes & Reviews:

Volume 1 in a three-volume series of the complete recordings, re-mastered from the original PYE recordings, of legendary mid-20th century pianist Richard Farrell, whose life was cut short by a car accident in 1956. The recordings were made at Abbey Road studios in the UK, and this volume includes the Grieg and Liszt E-flat concertos in which he was partnered with the Halle Orchestra under George Weldon. Includes 20-page booklet with photographs and biographical information.

Gramophone
This music is wonderfully inventive, and Farrell brings out all the poetry and melancholy and humor in a performance that could hardly be bettered.
