 Update me on new releases by Bauer

Harold Bauer (1873 - 1951)

Bauer was born in New Malden, a suburb of London. His parents were musical and from the age of six he studied the violin, first with his father and then with Adolf Politzer, making his debut at the age of ten. He continued studying the violin as well as the piano, and, at Paderewski’s suggestion, moved to Paris to study the violin with Gorski. He later assisted Paderewski in his preparation of some piano concertos by playing the orchestral part on a second piano. Paderewski was impressed with Bauer’s talent as a pianist, and it was at this point that Bauer decided to focus on the piano instead of the violin. Paderewski coached him, though never gave him formal lessons, and helped him to get engagements, the first being a tour of Russia accompanying a singer, and recital engagements in parts of Europe. In 1899 he toured Scandinavia and Holland, and, because Hans Richter had heard him play in London, he was asked to play Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E flat with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Richter. More concerts followed in Europe, and Bauer made his USA debut in 1900 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra playing Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor Op. 15.
