Celebrating the 70th anniversary of American pianist and conductor Murray Perahia (born April 19th, 1947). His Grammy®, Gramophone, Echo Klassik, Edison, Midem Classical and Japan Recording Academy Award winning recordings in a special 15-CD edition. All recordings in facsimile sleeves, 80-page booklet with complete liner notes and an appreciation by Jessica Duchen. Murray Perahia’s prolific recording career has spanned some 45 years to date, encompassing music of three different centuries, from Bach to Bartók. Ever since his first LP, soon after his triumph at the 1972 Leeds International Piano Competition, aged 25, the great American pianist’s performances have more than stood the test of time; and along the way they have been recognized with an astonishing crop of awards. The Grammys in the US, the Gramophone Awards in Britain, the Diapason d’or in France and the ECHO Klassik awards in Germany are among the organizations that have picked out many of Perahia’s recordings as some of the finest of their day. This set is devoted to Perahia’s award-winning discs for Sony Classical / CBS Masterworks.
