Shura Cherkassy (1909-1995) was one of the greatest piano virtuosos of his time. This WDR studio broadcast sourced from the original master tapes includes a performance of Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini from 1970 in superb stereo. He recorded the work only once in 1953 which was never issued on CD so this recording, along with Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No.7 (also never recorded commercially) represent two major new works in Cherkassky’s large discography.
