Product description

Mozart Complete Piano Sonatas – Artur Balsam L’Oiseau-Lyre OLS 177-181 5 x Stereo LPs

Artur Balsam (born Warsaw 1906 died New York 1994) (piano)
He studied in Łódź, making his debut there at the age of 12 then enrolled at the Berlin Hochschule fur Musik and studied with Artur Schnabel and Curt Boerner. In 1930 he won the Berlin International Piano Competition and obtained the prestigious Mendelssohn Prize in chamber music the following year with Roman Totenberg. In 1932 he made a tour of the United States with Yehudi Menuhin. With the rise of the Nazis, Balsam settled in New York City, where he became the accompanist of choice for international artists, including Henri Temianka, with whom he performed twice in 1945 at Carnegie Hall, Zino Francescatti, David Oistrakh, Leonid Kogan, Oscar Shumsky, Isaac Stern, Zara Nelsova, Joseph Fuchs, Lillian Fuchs, Mstislav Rostropovich, Nathan Milstein, Roman Totenberg, among many others. He became the undisputed dean of chamber music performance and teaching in the United States, and also performed occasional solo recitals. He recorded the completed piano works of Mozart for Oiseau Lyre.
He served on the faculties of the Eastman School of Music, Boston University, and the Manhattan School of Music. Some of his notable students include Emanuel Ax, Astrith Baltsan, Edmund Battersby, Paul-André Bempéchat, Carla Dodek, Robert Freeman, Mina Miller,[2] Edward Niemann, Murray Perahia, and Eleanor Wong.

The five records are in Excellent condition as are the box and booklet, which has notes on all of the music by A. Hyatt King.
