[ Decca Original Masters / 7 CD Box Set ]
Release Date: Tuesday 10 April 2007
"This is the final volume in Decca's Original Masters 21-disc survey of what the fastidious English pianist Clifford Curzon (1907-82) called his "apppointments with posterity" in the recording studio. This set offers a valuably deep perspective on the balance of Curzon's musical personality, where the demands of musicianship (finely adjusted) and virtuosity (unobtrusive) were always kept nicely poised."
