Byron Janis (b1928) was born in Pennsylvania to Polish-Russian Jewish parents, and is one of a remarkable group of American virtuoso pianist that include Leon Fleischer, Gary Graffman, Julius Katchen and Raymond Lewenthal. Janis’s playing was high voltage, platinum plated, and the recordings on this 4CD set illustrate clearly why he was and still is held in such high regard. He was Horowitz’s first student, and he rocketed to fame by being the first American pianist to go to Moscow and Leningrad in 1960 at a time of high tension in the Cold War. He married the daughter of Gary Cooper (Maria Cooper was a successful artist) and so was brushed by Hollywood aristocracy. His last recording was made in 1970 for EMI and Bryce Morrison wrote in Gramophone ‘in every sense a true romantic..beneath a now frail exterior burns an inner light of an overwhelming and transcending strength’ Very much an intuitive Slavic pianist rather than a Teutonic intellectual, he epitomises Chopin’s exhortation to ‘play with all your soul’.

Booklet notes.

Recordings made for Mercury Living Presence.

‘Janis certainly storms the work with all the resources of his big technique, yet at the same time the performance is by no means without style’ Gramophone review Rachmaninov 3, 1962

‘And the performance? Given the approach, it is as outstanding as the recorded sound. Byron Janis rises to a phenomenal pitch of virtuosity, which brings to mind the shattering rapidity and precision of Horowitz; his machine-gun delivery of the battering octave passages takes one's breath away, while his flawless finger dexterity in the central - section of the slow movement flashes past at an incredible speed which leaves the ear toiling in pursuit’ Gramophone, Tchaikovsky 1, 1962

“it's a supercharged, witty performance [of the Poulenc] from 2007; Argerich's lacerating runs in the first movement are worth the price of the set alone...[Scaramouche is] a final helping of joyous, free-wheeling music-making.” The Guardian, 22nd November 2012 ****

“[Argerich] combines a colossal technique with powerfully instinctive musicianship and electrifying energy. This exciting release is an ideal present.” New York Times, 23rd November 2012

“Few artists being such unfettered joy to their music-making as Argerich, and few combine such artless spontaneity, technical brilliance and searching insights. These are qualitites that shine through this marvellous new set...Even collectors who have Argerich playing most of these works already are likely to be as thrilled and elated as I have been listening to this extraordinary anthology” International Record Review, December 2012

“amply featuring her mercurial magic and joy in communal music-making.” The Times, 21st December 2012

“I would not deter anyone from duplicating because...there are many moments and passages of pure delight, often deriving from the frisson of a live performance (listen to the Poulenc!) One marvels anew at such freshly minted interpretations married to the insights, subtle nuances and detail acquired only after long acquaintance.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013

This box contains five splendid productions of Sergiu Celibidache (28 June1912 – 14. August 1996) for his 100th Anniversary.

He was one of the most charismatic, talented and fascinating conductors of all time; his profound knowledge of instrumental frequencies and acoustic science made him a genius of sound.

The five DVD-titles in this magnificent box-set present him conducting some of the most beloved pieces in the world, in concert and in valuable, rarely-seen rehearsal footage. He is joined by Daniel Barenboim (who dubbed him ‘one of the greatest musicians I ever encountered’), Hans Kalafusz, the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR, and his beloved Münchner Philharmoniker, in a illuminating and moving set of performances.

Highly acclaimed, fascinating and dazzling productions - A real must-have!

“admirers will find much to interest them...It’s notable for the richness of Celibidache’s verbal pointers...the longish Strauss rehearsal will merit a place on your shelf. It is an interesting character study - of control, relaxation, terseness and more floridly encouraging praise. Psychologically it’s a rewarding half an hour plus - and the performance shows the translation of those ideas and ideals in fine fashion.” MusicWeb International, November 2012
