An essential tribute to one of the finest artists of the last century, Decca’s modestly-priced set finds benchmark performances of some of the key works in the repertory, in mostly superb sound. Mozart concertos with Britten and quartets with members of the Amadeus Quartet; Schubert sonatas and the Trout quintet; Beethoven with Knappertsbusch; it is folly to continue listing the treasures herein. With many rarities and previously unissued recordings and interviews, and a DVD of recitals filmed for BBC television, this is urgently recommended.
