This was by request. Hope you enjoy it.

All three works presented here are products of composers who were either pianists of outstanding ability, or who had a close affiliation with the instrument in youth. While Schumann himself was not a pianist, he combined criticism with composition, and in both, he expressed such personality and individuality that writers and composers have been challenged to equal the results for more than a hundred years.

As always, if anyone has requests for other titles in this set, please add them to the comments.

Top-Vinyl 44.1/16 (EMI) Solomon plays Beethoven, Chopin, Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Schubert and many others

front_small_boxset
Thank you Mr. Trottar for this great gem!
Solomon Cutner was born in the East End of London in 1902. He was a child prodigy whose talent was recognised at the age of seven when, having had no formal tuition, he performed his own arrangement of the 1812 Overture on the family piano. He gave his first concerts in 1912 at the age of ten, retired from public performance in his teens and then resumed his career as an adult performer. He began making records in 1929. As a child he was sent to live with his teacher, Mathilde Verne, who had studied with Clara Schumann. It is documented that Verne abused and exploited her young charge.
