This second release in Guild’s series of Historic ‘Three Great Pianists’ recordings features live performances from Alexander Brailowsky, Shura Cherkassky and Rudolf Serkin, recorded between 1945 and 1958, and intriguingly including two performance of Liszt’s virtuoso ‘Don Giovanni’ Fantasy played by Cherkassky. Throughout this CD, here is pianism of a consistently high quality, from three masters of the keyboard from the latter half of the 20th-century. The conductors – Serge Koussevitsky in the Mozart, and Dmitri Mitropoulos in the Richard Strauss - were themselves amongst the greatest to hold senior positions with two great American orchestras, lending artistry to this release which is quite unique.
