KEMPFF PLAYS SCHUMANN: Kempff’s 1950s Schumann – a beautifully-turned Piano Concerto with Krips as well as Papillons and the Arabeske – all recorded for Decca. Plus, for DG, the great C major Fantasie, the Études symphoniques and Kreisleriana.
‘When one hears Kempff’s Papillons … the Symphonic Studies, the piano concerto or the Kreisleriana, then miracles of refinement are at hand’ Joachim Kaiser
‘flows easily, totally charming’ [Arabeske] … ‘songful and flowing, with the fifth section sparkling and full of fantasy, and the sixth, Sehr langsam, as rapt as I have ever heard it’ Gramophone
