Edwin Fischer: Mozart - Beethoven - Schumann - Brahms

As an outstanding concert partner for the great orchestras and in his own solo recitals, Anda demonstrated a flexibility that was already a tradition in Salzburg, one founded anew by the instrumentalists of the early post-War years. Edwin Fischer was undoubtedly at the forefront here. He displayed his brilliant, infallible musicality in his trio performances with Wolfgang Schneiderhan and Enrico Mainardi, in solo recitals, and not least in the piano concertos that he performed as soloist-cum-conductor with the Vienna Philharmonic (he was one of the founding fathers of this particular interpretive art and possessed the authority that comes with it). All this is to be heard in our new collection in memory of Fischer, with recordings from the years 1946–54. There are piano concertos by Mozart, piano trios by the same composer, Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms, and then in Fischer’s final, gripping concert for the Salzburg public, we hear Beethoven’s sonatas opp. 28, 53 and 111.
