1930s: Heyday for Recording Piano Music

November 16, 2013

The era of the 1930s was a heyday for the recording of piano music, both in solo pieces as well as piano concertos. The roster of great pianists was full of legendary names: Artur Schnabel in Beethoven, Arthur Rubinstein in Chopin, and both the composer Rachmaninoff in his own concertos but also his young Russian colleague Vladimir Horowitz as a rival in Rachmaninoff's music. We'll sample some of these historic recordings.
