Philippe Entremont (piano)

[ Sony Classical Masters / 34 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Friday 19 July 2019

In celebration of renowned French pianist Phillippe Entremont's 85th birthday, Sony Classical is pleased to release Philippe Entremont's complete Columbia recordings for solo piano. This must have boxset is the first ever release of Philippe Entremont's complete Columbia recordings for solo piano in a single 34 CD edition and will also feature recordings which have not previously been released on CD. Included in this boxset are stunning recordings of compositions by well-known composers including Chopin, Brahms, Beethoven, Liszt, Debussy and more.

Entremont began playing the piano when he was six years old. By the age of 16, Entremont had won numerous prizes for sight-reading and piano playing including the prestigious Long-Thibaud Competition. In 1952, Entremont won the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition and began his career as a concert pianist shortly afterwards.

Entremont-who trained at the famed Paris Conservatoire and studied under legendary pianist Marguerite Long-has performed with internationally acclaimed orchestra's including the Munich Symphony Orchestra and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra.

As well as performing alongside world class orchestra's, Entremont has performed with many phenomenal musicians and conductors including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Gaby Casadesus and Leonard Bernstein.

In 1958, at the age of 23, Entremont made his name in the musical world with the release of his debut concerto recording for Columbia Masterworks. His recording of Grieg A minor and Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini-with Eugene Ormandy conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra was the first of many best-selling albums that Philippe Entremont would record for Columbia over the next two decades. This remarkable boxset features many of those best-selling albums.

"Having been recorded in 1961, this sensibly chosen cross-section of Debussy's more popular keyboard pieces is making a belated appearance here...Philippe Entremont plays them all commandingly, and has no trouble with the technical difficulties of "Feux d'artifice" or even L'ile joyeuse." (Gramophone on the reissue of the Debussy)
