Description

Longstanding Decca recording artist Vladimir Ashkenazy performs double duty as pianist and conductor with fine support from the Philharmonia Orchestra in penetrating readings of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major and Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major. BBC Music writes that Ashkenazy, "uncovers all manner of subtle musical expression beneath the music's surfaces...he displays an independence of thought and spirit that has one rethinking what this music is about."

Featuring an extensive repertoire that ranges from Bach to Bartók, Vladimir Ashkenazy's Decca discography comprises a vast number of recordings, many of which have been crowned with prizes. As one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation, he has received Grammy awards among other accolades for Beethoven's Piano Concertos with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Sir Georg Solti (1973), for Beethoven's Sonatas for Violin and Piano with Itzhak Perlman (1978), a Ravel program of solo works (1985) and Shostakovich's Preludes and Fugues (1999).

"It is rare to find, in the same artist, the very highest levels of musical talent living alongside the deepest genuine humility. None has that rare combination in higher degree than Vladimir Ashkenazy." - Gramophone
