Notes & Reviews:

Wilhelm Backhaus realized the significance of the gramophone record early on, making his first solo recording in 1908 and going on to record many more, each tantamount to a live performance. These recordings, offered up here, represent the earliest ever recordings of works by composers like Mozart, Strauss, Chopin, Brahms, and Liszt.
