On Sale!

This CD is self-commendable for the record collector and Katchen admirer. His German radio performances in this recording from 1960-1962 centered around European composers: Mussorgsky, Balakirev, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schumann. 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 recording. None of these radio performances have been published before.
