Sviatoslav Richter said that that Hungarian born Annie Fischer was ‘a great artist imbued with a spirit of greatness and genuine profundity’ while Pollini felt her playing contained ‘a childlike simplicity, immediacy and wonder’.Compared to her peers, she seems to have been among the the least recorded due to her dislike of the studio. David Threasher in his booklet notes remarked that Fischer had ‘unerring awareness’ of the shifting moods in this 1958 live recording of Schumann’s Piano Concerto and was ‘powerfully authoriative’ in the two Beethoven Sonatas from 1957. None of these WDR performances have been published before.
