Clifford Curzon, undoubtedly one of the most important English pianists of the 20th century, was born in London in 1907 and died there in 1982. Knighted by the Queen, he was lauded by critics as the greatest "Mozartian" of his time. Curzon's recordings of the Schubert Impromptus, the "Trout Quintet" and the Symphonic Variations by César Franck, which are included in this 10-CD box, did set standards that are still valid today. Curzon made his debut under Henry Wood at London's Queen's Hall at the age of 16, and from 1928 on he completed his studies with Artur Schnabel in Berlin and with Nadia Boulanger and Wanda Landowska in Paris. He married Landowska's student Lucille Wallace. After the early death of the singer Maria Cebotari and her husband Gustav Diessl, the couple adopted their two sons. Curzon was equally respected as a soloist and as a chamber musician. Outstanding documents of this can also be found in this box. Apparent in all of these recordings is something critics around the globe noted about Curzon: a piano tone, which "could unite clear contour and bright luminosity in an inimitable way".
