Product Description

A live recording of a recital performed at Carnegie Hall, 1960 by Robert Schrade, hailed across the globe as one of the important pianists of our time. Works are unedited, except for noise reduction and cuts in lengthy applause.

Review

The performances are outstanding. The Beethoven Variations bring to mind the legendary Rachmaninoff recording clean, precise and clear, but with the full measure of sturm und drang that was so dominant in Beethoven's middle period. Schumann's Faschingsschwank is not played as often as a number of his other large scale works, and this recording makes you wonder why. At under 20 minutes, it is not as long as Sonatas 1 and 3, Carnaval, Humoreske, Kreisleriana, Fantasy, etc. Its ebullient character is brought out perfectly by Schrade. The last big work, Chopin's Sonata 3, is given a truly heroic performance, very much befitting its stature as one of the greatest works for piano. Tempos are fairly quick, and even the pathos of the Largo movement keeps moving along. But it is the finale that puts even the greatest pianists to the test. I have heard more than one concert performance marred by the pianist running out of gas. Some miss a note or two at the very end. Not so here not even an inkling of slowing down on the third statement of the main theme, where the left hand has twice as many notes as the right. A brilliant driving coda brings the house down. As a sure indication of the amount of adrenaline Schrade must have had flowing, his first encore is the fastest performance of Debussy's Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum I have ever encountered. Chopin Etudes in E and A-flat, more Schumann (from Kinderszenen) and a short piece by Mrs. Schrade conclude a most memorable recording. We are informed in the booklet that Volume 2 is planned, with works by Albeniz, Balakirev, Brahms, Barber, and Mozart. I can't wait! --James Harrington, American Record Guide, May/June 2010

A great talent ... one of the greatest in the world of pianists. --Het Parool, Amsterdam
