It is 30 years since legendary British pianist Clifford Curzon died (September 1, 1972). Over the course of his career, during a long and almost exclusive association with Decca, Curzon established a pre-eminence unrivaled by any other British pianist of his generation. For the first time this collection brings together every recording he ever made for Decca which has survived (in the days of fragile 78 rpm shellac discs one or two items were given to the artist as unique-copy test-pressings and these have not survived), including several which have never been published on CD (or even LP) by Decca (Falla: Noches en los jardine de Espana recorded in September 1945; Liszt: Mephisto Waltz No. 1 and Liebestraum No. 3 recorded in September 1947; Liszt: Sonetto 104 del Petrarca recorded in 1942). Published for the first-time ever in any format are 8 pieces including a Medtner Fairy Tale, Chopin C sharp minor nocturne, Beethoven's "Rage over a lost penny," and 5 pieces by Brahms. These recordings survived as 78 rpm test-pressings in Clifford Curzon's private collection and have been made available for publication through his family. Also with the 23 CDs is a famous DVD program made by the BBC and licensed globally for issue. It includes Curzon performing solo works by Schumann and Brahms filmed in 1959 black & white and Schubert - including a complete performance of the Piano Sonata in B flat, D960, filmed in 1968 (color).
