Recorded ‘live’ in the Beethovenhalle in 1959! Well known for his interpretations and recordings of Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms, Wilhelm Backhaus was much admired as a chamber musician. This 1959 concert gives us the rare opportunity to hear Backhaus ‘live’ in the Beethovenhalle in Bonn in a typical programme of Schubert and Beethoven including the mighty Hammerklavier. According to the pianist and Beethoven specialist Stephen Kovacevich, Backhaus was the only pianist to have understood the work.
