These recordings date from Alexis ‘Sigi’ Weissenberg’s graduation from the Juilliard School and prior to his lengthy sabbatical. As such they offer an extremely rare opportunity to hear a varied programme from a pianist who polarised opinion but never failed to pack the concert hall.
“This splendid collection of early Weissenberg recordings captures his big personality in expansive repertoire, notably Prokofiev, Haydn and Liszt. The poor sound proves frustrating.”
