Karlrobert Kreiten was a phenomenal young German pianist murdered by the Nazis 1943 due to defamation and backstabbing.

This CD release contains the complete preserved recordings of Karlrobert Kreiten. This explains the fact that certain pieces are presented in two different versions, along with two further recordings whose quality might be deemed unacceptable, yet which we have nevertheless included as a sort of postscript at the end. Indeed, such poor recording quality emblematically reflects the problematic handling of Karlrobert Kreitenís legacy. For many years, no document of Kreitenís piano playing had ever surfaced. In 1983, however, Emmy Kreiten-Barido finally authorized the Thorofon firm to publish some of her late sonís private recordings as part of a commemorative LP. The original phonograph records used as a basis for that LP are apparently lost; thus, for the current release, we have had to retrace the steps presumably taken in the course of the 1983 mastering process in order to process the signal with the digital techniques now available....

The disc also includes a series of Hommages to Kreiten, played by Tobias Koch and Udo Falkner.
