Mono HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Melodia) Schumann/Haydn/LvB/Tchaikowsky – Piano Trios (Kogan Trio)

All thanks for these gems go to Trottar

Emil Gilels (1916-1985) could summon thunderous waves of sound from the keyboard, but was equally capable of melting tenderness and delicate nuance. This extraordinary box set brings together live chamber music performances made in Moscow and London from 1950 to 1958 with Gilels and other world-famous artists. Violinist Leonid Kogan, violist Rudolf Barshai, and cellist Mstislav Rostropovich were all among the greatest instrumentalists of their era, and their collaboration in these rare live recordings make this set indispensable to any collector.
