The pristine sound!

"Sandor Vegh was another musical genius spiritually nurtured by Pablo Casals. There were also other remarkable and emblematic soloists (Rudolf Serkin, Joseph and Lilian Fuchs, Eugene Istomin, Paul Tortellier and Arthur Grumiaux, among a well expanded list).
That touch and torch of genius even enhanced his penetrating approaches about every score, the importance of the sound beyond the simple garnishment , the whole meaning of an arpeggio in order to achieve the maximum of an essential expressiveness as the final outcome between soul and mind.
His double role as chamber soloist with his widely known team and conductor of the famous Salzburg ensemble allowed him to focus and devoted attention around Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven with such level of grandness that hardly it might be found.
In this sense and thanks to his close friendship with Vegh, Andras Schiff has gained such reputation and prominence at the international stages.
This album is just another sample that confirms the supreme evidence of artistic superiority and unerring interpretative eloquence.
Don't let pass this musical document of relevant transcendence.
