Format: Audio CD
This 2 CD set contains one of the greatest piano wonders of the XX century - Brahms' Paganini variations, Op. 35, recorded by Wilhelm Backhaus for HMV in one session, on November 19, 1929. Unfortunately, Bryce Morrison's longish essay provides no details about this session and the circumstances of other Backhaus recordings included in this 2 CD-set. From the notes one can figure out that Backhaus was back in HMV studio on December 5, 1932 (Ballades Op. 10 Nos. 1 & 2, Scherzo Op. 4, Ballade Op. 118, No. 3, Intermezzi Op. 118 Nos. 1 & 2, Intermezzo Op. 76, No. 7 & Capriccio Op. 76, No. 8), visited the studio again on December 7, 1932 to record five other Brahms items (three pieces from Op. 118, Nos. 4, 5 & 6, and both Rhapsodies, Op. 79). On March 31, 1933 he recorded three Waltzes from Op. 39 (Nos. 1, 2 & 15). On April 1, 1933 he recorded two Hungarian dances (Nos. 6 & 7). All these items, except for the Paganini variations, are placed on CD 1. After some three years Backhaus made a complete recording of all Waltzes, Op. 39 and added some more Brahms pieces (Intermezzi Op. 119, Nos. 2 & 3, Capriccio Op. 76, No. 2 and Variations on an original theme, Op. 21, No. 1): all this was done during the same session on January 27, 1936. Some days before, on January 9, 1936, Backhaus recorded seven more intermezzi (Op. 116, Nos. 1-4, Op. 117, Nos. 1 & 2, Op. 119, No. 1). All of them are placed on CD 2, in addition to Paganini-variations, Op. 35.
This was the third and last recording of Paganini-variations by Backhaus: the two previous variants made in the acoustic period (1916 & 1925) have mainly a historical interest, but this one, made with a mike, in a very clear `electric' sound, killed many generations of Brahms' pianists.
