Four Steinways – One Hamburg Philharmonic – Three Keyboard Virtuosos – One former Chancellor of West Germany. It’s a potent mixture. It could have been one of the travesties of recording history. Happily, this disc has never gone out of circulation (recorded 1985) and the reasons are self-evident.
EDIT Nov./9th/15: read just few minutes ago that health condition of former Chancellor Schmidt (96) has dramatically changed in the last hours. I’m afraid he’s goin’ to go 🙁
EDIT Nov./10th/15 Helmut Schmidt died today !
