Notes & Reviews:

American pianist William Kapell was famed for a virtuoso technique that rivaled that of Horowitz, Rubinstein and Rachmaninov. In 1942, Efrem Kurtz invited Kapell to perform the Khachaturian Concerto with the New York Philharmonic. This led to Kapell making this recording with Serge Koussevitsky and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Such was the success of this recording that it became a jukebox hit, being released on 45s.
