(DDD) Recorded March 13-14. 2000,
in Corbett Auditorium, Cincinnati, Ohio

Mastered using 24-Bit State-of-the-Art Technology

Two brilliant Romantic piano quintets, universally regarded as chamber music masterpieces, are recorded here for the first time in elegantly expanded versions for piano with string orchestra. The lush sonics and gorgeous textures originally imagined by both, Schumann and Dohnnyi vividly come alive in these dramatic performances recorded in March 2000.

"The real interest in this CD lies in the performances by Earl Wild, which can only be called astonishing. Wild was hovering around his 85th birthday at the time he recorded these two works; and while there have been other pianists (from Plante and Sauer to Rubinstein and Horszowski) who have recorded well into their eighties, only Eubie Blake, in my experience, came close to matching Wild's freshness (in both senses) of spirit - and no one else, not even Horowitz, managed to keep his fingers in such fine estate.
