This fifth Audite release featuring the Swiss-Hungarian pianist, presents Géza Anda’s Telefunken recordings of 1950 and 1951, re-mastered for the first time, closing the last major gap in his discography. In works by Bach, Haydn, Mozart and Schumann, Anda's recordings are characterised by a distinctive balance of spontaneity and intellectual control, incisive poetry and brilliant technique.
Chronologically, the Telefunken recordings are positioned between Anda’s first recordings for Deutsche Grammophon and the later recordings for Columbia and DG. They document the pianist’s transition from brilliant virtuoso to sophisticated musician.
Comprising Robert Schumann’s Carnaval Op.9 and his Symphonic Etudes Op.13, the Telefunken recordings represent two important pillars of Anda’s repertoire. However, they also contain three works which he played only rarely: Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita No.2 in C minor, BWV826, Joseph Haydn’s Sonata in F major, Hob.XVI/23, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s last Piano Sonata in D major, K576.
The recording of the Mozart sonata is a particular rarity and treasure as it is the only recording of Anda, the great Mozart interpreter, documenting a performance of a Mozart work for solo piano.
