Sony Classical pays tribute to Artur Schnabel — one of the twentieth century’s most influential pianists and musical thinkers. This release brings together the pianist’s sessions for RCA Victor, recorded within an intense six days of activity in 1942. Beethoven’s G Major and Emperor concertos with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra appeared commercially shortly after these recording sessions. The two late Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Nos. 30 and 32, were issued for the first time in 1976. The final works on the release, Schubert’s Impromptus, D. 899, receive their first commercial pressing in this belated release.
