Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Moiseiwitsch’s are performances of stature. The Emperor with Szell and the LPO comes from 1938 and long enjoyed classic status. The Third has had a favourable press in its new incarnation—and rightly so. Moiseiwitsch’s playing in the slow movement is poetic and magisterial, and Ward Marston has returned to the original tapes rather than to the shellac dubbings, so the sound is exceptionally good for the period. Moiseiwitsch was hailed in the USA as ‘a veritable aristocrat of the keyboard’ but was underrated here in the 1950s. This CD leaves no doubts as to his wonderful pianism and his depth of insight.
