Format: Audio CD
This album includes rare broadcasts made by Walter Gieseking from 1947 to 1952, of works he did not record commercially - de Falla's `Nights in the Gardens of Spain', Hindemith's `Four temperaments' (CD 1). It also includes a broadcast of Chopin's 3rd Ballade made 14 Nov, 1947(CD 2, track 7) and two works central for Gieseking's programs - Beethoven's Appassionata (CD 2, tracks 1-3) and Schumann's Fantasy in C (CD 2, tracks 1-3).

Gieseking had broad musical interests and easily memorized new works. Gieseking's trumps - gorgeous touch and rhythmic flexibility - are especially evident in XXth century music.

The best recording in the compilation is De Falla's `Nights in the Gardens of Spain' (CD 1, tracks 1-3), with Kurt Schroeder conducting RSO Frankfurt (the same orchestra is also called in German Sinfonie-Orchester des Hessichen Rundfunks). Gieseking shines in this impressionistic score. The conductor is OK and the sound is acceptable.

As for the Hindemith's variations (broadcast from 8th October 1952), the solo part seldom gets such a splendid performance, but the overall impression is spoiled by less than perfect conducting of Winfried Zillig and by disastrous acoustics - no kudos to Hessisch Rundfunk. If you in these conditions can enjoy Hindemith's masterpiece, this album is for you. The variations entitled `Melancholish', `Sanguinish', `Phlegmatisch', `Cholerish' illustrate four temperaments. I would rather say that Gieseking was a phlegmatic, to judge on his recorded legacy. This is occasionally felt in the first movement of Schumann's Fantasy (CD 2, track 4) but all four Hindemith's `temperaments' - and the introductory theme (CD 1, track 4), are played with brio.
