Stefan Askenase

8.99 € 6.75 €

The playing of Stefan Askenase was once described as marvel of tender poetry, subtle rubato, and lucid clarity. He had deep sense of musicianship, grasp of musical structure, elemental pianism and visceral yet intellectually weighted emotionality. These rare German radio broadcast recordings span the period 1955-1958, make their first appearance on CD, and there are also works here by Mozart, Chopin and Beethoven.
