That the Australian Noel Mewton-Wood was one of the greatest of all pianists was an almost universal opinion of his Protean genius. He died, tragically, in 1953, at the early age of 35. His recorded legacy is desperately small, and these rare wartime solo recordings appear on CD for the first time.

The works by Schubert and Beethoven feature two of Mewton-Wood’s frequent collaborators, Peter Pears and Dennis Brain, and are taken from a BBC recital broadcast in his final year. The Weber and Chopin date from 1941.
