Wilhelm Kempff


Wilhelm Kempff requires no introduction – he was one of the greatest and most distinguished pianists of the 20th century with a large discography. Kempff approaches each piece as a masterwork in its own right and he was a master at finding the poetry and lyricism inside any work. This is gorgeous piano recital, recorded in Aix-en-Provence in 1955, evocatively capturing the shifting moods of this often elusive composers. None of these French radio performances have been published before.
