About

Earl Wild (1915 ‐ 2010) was without doubt one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. His immense repertoire, his staggering virtuosity, his warmth and his charm deserve him the epithet 'legendary'.

Wild was a great improviser as well, and he frequently played his own fantasies in his concerts. Fortunately, he wrote these wonderful pieces down, and his creative legacy contains a wealth of transcriptions, fantasies and paraphrases, as well as original piano works.

This release is the first of a complete recording of these works. It contains his brilliant Virtuoso Studies on songs by Gershwin, an intimate transcription of the adagio from Marcelloís Oboe Concerto, the tongue‐in‐cheek rendering of a Bach Chorale in the style of Poulenc, the Larghetto from Chopinís 2nd Piano Concerto, and Wildís own Piano Sonata.

Fun, glitter, contemplation and passion: itís all here in the wonderful playing of young Italian pianist Giovanni Doria Miglietta!
