About

When the ORFEO label was established in Munich 40 years ago, few would have predicted that the record company would develop into a firmly established player in the classical music market. One of the labelís priorities in the early years was vocal music, with opera rarities top of the list and, since the mid 1980s, the re-use of historic tape recordings. Big names featured on the labelís own productions, while ORFEO also developed into a talent factory for discovering and nurturing young artists.

This Legendary Pianists 10-disc boxed set continues the series marking ORFEOís 40th anniversary and features nine pianists in historical and modern recordings dating from the 1950s to the 2000s.
