Friedrich Wührer

Friedrich Wührer was one of the prominent representatives of the Austro-German piano school. Wührer was revered as the sublime master by other great pianists of his time, especially by Walter Gieseking, Wilhelm Backhaus, and Wilhelm Kempff. Wührer recorded the first nominally complete cycle of Schubert’s piano sonatas, but he did not record commercially Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy or Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata. Our unique CD collects these German radio recordings for the first time ever.
