About

46 CDs in original jackets presented chronologically so we can follow the development of the artist over his 50+ years career on Decca. Contains every concerto recording made for Decca with Vladimir Ashkenazy as pianist, including a previously unpublished Mozart K488.

2 DVDs feature Ashkenazy’s 1974 recordings with Bernard Haitink of the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos with extra documentary footage and the Beethoven overtures, filmed at the Royal Festival Hall.

Extensive booklet with new essays by critic Jed Distler and career-long manager Jasper Parrot.

Also includes three Beethoven cycles, including the Grammy award-winning recordings with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Sir Georg Solti (1973), two Rachmaninov cycles, and the Prokofiev, Brahms, Bartók and Mozart cycles.

Recordings of Ashkenazy directing from the piano: the Beethoven cycle with the Cleveland Orchestra and Mozart with the Philharmonia Orchestra.

“It is rare to find, in the same artist, the very highest levels of musical talent living alongside the deepest genuine humility. None has that rare combination in higher degree than Vladimir Ashkenazy.”
- Gramophone, June 2013

“From Ashkenazy, every page declares Rachmaninov’s nationality, his indelibly Russian nature … Prévin works hand in glove with his soloist … the product of the greatest musical sympathy.” - Gramophone on the Ashkenazy-Previn Rachmaninov cycle

“The complete Ashkenazy/Solti set of Beethoven concertos in one word is superb. The range of Ashkenazy’s tone is tremendous … Sir Georg Solti’s accompaniment is right on the spot and his Chicago orchestra is recorded with a fine depth of sound” - Gramophone on the Ashkenazy-Solti Beethoven cycle
