Dame Moura Lympany is both a virtuosa and legend. Her playing has been described as a "unique combination of bravura and sound, which is extraordinary in its loveliness." Possessing an enormous repertoire (she is one of the few pianists to play over forty concertos!), she has been accorded numerous honors. In 1992 Moura Lympany became Dame Moura, the first pianist to receive Britain's highest distinction since Clifford Curzon became Sir Clifford in 1977 and the first woman pianist since Myra Hess was honored in 1941. Dame Moura has performed before the public for over 66 years. The piano concertos on this disc recorded in 1964 and 1967 for Reader's Digest Records have never been available on CD and are a testament of her musicianship and virtuosity. This disc has been newly remastered by Ivory Classics using 24-bit HDCD technology.

Reviews
"All these recordings, dating 1964 to 1967, appear on general release for the first time: a glorious reminder of Dame Moura in her prime. The Litolff could hardly be more vivacious. How she revels in the scintillating tracery of Falla's sumptuous and indeed unique nocturne, combining an immaculate taste with an exhilarating joie de vivre. In the Liszt she rides every pianistic storm with effortless mastery. This is a performance of superb authority. All the recordings have come up excellently and the booklet is lavishly illustrated with splendid photographs of the composers and of Dame Moura at her most decollete." - Gramophone
