About

Ten of the world’s greatest pianists of the 20th century - Sviatoslav Richter, Maurizio Pollini, Artur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz, Van Cliburn, Geza Anda, Clara Haskil, Leon Fleisher, Julius Katchen and Byron Janis - are featured in this special 10-CD box set of some of their best albums.

Collectively the hands of these outstanding artists brought to life, often in exceptional ways, the major works of the piano literature, both concertos and solo piano music. Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Liszt and Chopin are represented, as are Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and Schumann, Scriabin and Prokofiev. The result is a portrait of an epoch unique in its pianistic versatility.

The original artwork, both European and American, is printed on the sleeves of these exemplary albums recorded by ten giants of the keyboard.
