Complete new rip with the new rig and in 24/192
This disc couples two recordings made in 1959 at a time when Decca was at the forefront of recording technology. They also had on their rosta of soloists Julius Katchen who was perfectly attuned to these three pieces. Julius Katchen had an interesting combination of Russian heritage, an inexhaustible fund of energy both physical and mental, and a technique that overcame challenges with some apparent ease. This combination led him to make spectacularly exciting recordings of Liszt and these three works all of which respond so very well to his special brand of nonchalant bravura. In this he is also matched by the orchestra and Boult as conductor.
