Notes & Reviews:
The oblivion which has overtaken Eugen d'Albert in the second half of the twentieth century would have surprised anyone who saw his prodigious rise to fame in the 1880s and '90s. He was known then as one of the world's greatest pianists, had studied with Liszt, and knew Brahms. From his teens, there began to emerge a body of composition which showed a maturity well beyond his years and seemed to produce a fusion of the then-incompatible schools of the "moderns" (Liszt and Wagner) and the "traditionalists" (Brahms and his followers). D'Albert's piano concertos have been recorded to much acclaim by Piers Lane, who is featured on this mid-priced Helios series reissue of the composer's works for solo piano.
