Rosl Schmid ∙ German Radio Recordings 1943-1958


Rosl Schmid was one of the major German pianists of the 20th century, but has now unjustly faded into obscurity. These concertos were recorded in the 1940s and 1950s, at the height of her power, and are appearing on CD for the first time. Judging by these performances, she not only had great technique but also brought a keen lyrical and dramatic sense to her playing. Our discovery of rare recordings brings her artistry back into the present.
