The career of the great British pianist Solomon (1902-1988) was cruelly cut short by a debilitating stroke in 1956, at the height of his powers. At the time, Solomon was universally regarded as one of the greatest living pianists, especially admired in Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms. His enforced retirement meant that his recordings are relatively few in number, so the emergence of radio broadcasts of him from the 1950s are particularly valuable. This unique CD couples a superb performance of Brahms’s D minor Concerto, with the young Lorin Maazel conducting the RAI Orchestra of Turin, with a BBC broadcast of Mozart’s Sonata in B flat K 333. Here is a very rare opportunity to hear this magnificent artist at his very best - performances which place him amongst the greatest pianists of the twentieth-century.
