Wilhelm Kempff was one of the great German pianists of the postwar period, and his two sets of Beethoven sonatas remain a standard by which all others are measured. He was not a flashy artist, nor was he grimly severe. Rather, he practiced a sort of natural eloquence of expression that made his Beethoven one of the most satisfying over the long haul. Individual moments may rarely leap out and grab you, but his performances leave a satisfying impression of completeness, as if no stone has been left unturned. These performances have been highly regarded since the early 1960s, and with good reason. They offer an admirable picture of Kempff as an artist, and the accompaniments are quite fine. –David Hurwitz

  1. I could not get this .rar file to expand properly. There seemed to be a problem with it. Is there supposed to be a Part 2? Totally confusing. Did others get it to work, I’m curious?

    • of course, there are two parts….you must unrar only part 1 and then the other part will be unrared automatically.
      Believe me, everything works fine…downloaded by people +120 times, never a problem like you report. Maybe something became corrupted while you downloaded. In those cases I always say to download again, maybe on night times, when the net generally is faster…and download in once, without interruptions, that can cause CRC-errors.

  2. Rachmaninov;

    Thx a MILLION for your amazing posts. Any way you could re-up this ESSENTIAL recording? I’m looking for the others in this cycle @ 24 96 or higher… could we see others posted in the future?

  3. I have enjoyed Beethoven performed by Kempff for a long time. Kempff is still my favorite pianist for Beethoven. Thank you so much for this great post.

  4. This is a lazy man’s post! I downloaded a heap of Rach’s fabulous rips in the last half day. So instead of spending ages finding each one and making separate comments I’ll mention them all here:

    Thanks for:
    1. Beethoven piano concertos 2, 4, and 5/Kempff
    2. Bruckner symphonies 2-4 /Jochum
    3. Rossini overtures/Giulini
    4. Pavarotti/Bologna recital
    5. Walcha-Bach box set
    6. Scheherazade/Muti (this sounds fantastic)
    7. Schubert piano trios/Oppitz and friends
    8. Schubert symphony D. 944/Böhm
