Julius Katchen - The Complete Decca Recordings 35 CDs.

The American-born/Paris-based pianist Julius Katchen, who died in 1969 at 42 after battling cancer, would have turned 90 in 2016. Decca commemorates with a boxed set devoted to Katchen’s complete recordings for the label, including items gaining their first international CD release and several previously unpublished sessions.

Younger collectors and piano fans chiefly associate Katchen with Brahms’ music, and for good reason. However, listeners willing to explore Katchen’s recorded legacy en masse, so to speak, will discover not only the breadth of this pianist’s repertoire but also the trajectory of his artistic development over the course of his tragically curtailed career.
