Catalogue Number: 06L073
Reference: SOCD 102
Description: cause Horowitz played them, the only pieces on this disc which ever get recorded with some regularity are Op. 72, Nos. 2 and 6. Here are the rest of the set, which Moszkowski subtited "Per aspera" - across [all] difficulties. Less overtly virtuosic, but still virtuosic enough, are the dozen for left hand which explore varieties of touch as well as technical demands. No other recording of this cycle exists. Alain Raës (piano). Original 1993 release.
