About

Marking 50 years since the passing of Wilhelm Backhaus (5 July 1969), Decca brings together, for the first time, the artist’s complete recordings for the label.

New remasterings showcase the incredible integrity of Backhaus’s pianism.

Landmark recordings of Beethoven - including two Sonata cycles (mono and stereo – the stereo only omits Op.106, not recorded at the time of Backhaus’s death); Brahms’s Concertos, Cello Sonatas (with Fournier); and Backhaus’s celebrated 1954 Carnegie Hall recital.

Recordings with the Wiener Philharmoniker and Clemens Krauss (Beethoven); Karl Böhm (Brahms, Mozart); Carl Schuricht (Brahms); Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt (Beethoven); and Günter Wand (Schumann).

Includes the first international release of Backhaus’s last public performance – two weeks before he died; and the mono Beethoven Sonata cycle.

Packaging: 2-piece box, 39 CDs, original jackets & spined wallets, booklet with extensive new essay by Jonathan Summers (Classical Music Curator of The British Library).
