Edwin Fischer, pianist & conductor

Updated: Aug 19, 2022

Here are four collections, showing the versatility of this remarkable artist.

Volume 1: Mozart Symphony No. 33, the Ricercare a 6 from Bach's Musical Offering, the Air from the 3rd Orchestral Suite & 5 movements from Mozart's Serenade No. 10

Volume 2: Haydn Symphony No. 104, a Concerto grosso by dell'Abaco & Beethoven's Grosse Fuge in Weingartner's arrangement.

Volume 3: Brahms - Piano Quartet in G minor & 4 solo pieces.

Volume 4: Bach's 2nd Brandenburg Concerto, a Prelude and Fugue arranged by Fischer & a Mozart Contredanse.

In regard to Volume 3 (Brahms), a gentleman has very kindly pointed out that there are two 4th movements for the Piano Quartet (track 4). I will need to investigate & report back. In the meantime, APR have issued these recordings, and I am awaiting delivery of my copy. It may be that their version is better, in which case I will take this version down in due course.
