A host of highly talented young pianists crowded into the concert halls during the second half of the 20th century, many of whom still strongly influence the cultural life of our times. Representative of these are Martha Argerich, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Daniel Barenboim, who are presented in this collection with characteristic recordings of their first successes. In addition, there are those timeless artists whose recordings

have set the standards by which subsequent performers are measured, such as Wilhelm Kempff, Alfred Brendl, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and Wilhelm Backhaus, but also "exotics" like Alicia de Larrocha, Shura Cherkassky and the Chopin-marathon-artist Alexander Brailowsky. All of them and a few more are part of this varied and challenging collection.
