These are fascinating first appearances, after half a century, of mono recordings made in the early days of the LP but never previously issued in any form. Of the four piano sonatas tow are very much nineteenth century romantic and two are from 1936 alongside a 1922 dance suite. It is a diverse mix and one which only coheres around the performer rather than any unity of style. These projects from 1958 were never issued on LP and they appear on CD now for the first time.
