Alexander Uninsky

8.99 € 6.75 €

Alexander Uninsky was world-famous for his Chopin readings which brought out subtle finesse and a pearly tone, whereby the rubato in the right hand was accompanied by an impeccably accurate left. Consecrated by critics as an obvious successor to the supreme keyboard giants of earlier generations, Uninsky was called ‘great among the greatest’ and ‘Master of the Masters’ by the international press. Our discovery of rare French radio recordings brings his artistry back into the present and makes their first appearance on CD.
