About

Alpha continues to explore its catalogue and this year again offers a wide variety of combinations. After a box assembling the gems of the Baroque era (Masters of Baroque - ALPHA372), the piano is now given pride of place. The box set Masters of the Piano brings together 11 CDs in which great contemporary interpreters (Nelson Goerner, Alexander Lonquich, François-Frédéric Guy, Éric Le Sage, Edna Stern, Anna Vinnitskaya) retrace three centuries of creation on the piano, from Bach to Shostakovich, by way of Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Liszt, Chopin, Brahms, Rachmaninov and Debussy.
