In advance of the great pianist Earl Wild's 90th birthday this year (2005), this new CD is an extraordinary document of Mr Wild's famous virtuosity and technical dexterity intact at 89 years of age. In 2004 he recorded this recital of immensely demanding repertoire - Bach's Partita No 1, Scriabin's Sonata No 4, Franck's Prelude, Chorale and Fugue and Schumann's Fantasiestucke. Living History is a remarkable presentation of a master at the top of his form. Three of these works are being recorded for the first time (Bach, Scriabin and Schumann). The tone Mr.Wild extracts from the Sigeru Kawai Concert Grand is stunning. Now in his ninetieth year, Wild clealy shows that he has the grand spirit of the great romantic masters of the past plus a strong foothold in the Twenty-first Century. (DDD) 74 minutes.
