A concert pianist of such technique and enthusiasm Julius Katchen’s dazzling career was cut short by cancer at 42. Remembered as one of the great pianists of the 20th Century, August 15, 2016 marked the 90th year since his birth. Decca proudly presents US-born Katchen’s Complete Recordings for the label in a limited edition, 36-CD box set which includes his reference interpretations of Brahms solo piano works; thrilling accounts of concertos by Gershwin, Prokofiev, Brahms, Grieg, Schumann and Ravel; world premiere recordings of the Brahms Clarinet Sonatas with Thea King and Franck’s Prélude, Choral et Fugue; and three albums of new-to-CD recordings remastered from 78s. The lavish presentation comes complete with a lift-off-lid box, notes by Cyrus Meher-Homji, rare photos and selected original covers in an accompanying booklet.
