Along with Schnabel, in the first half of the 20th century Edwin Fischer was generally regarded as the greatest interpreter of the Germanic classics. This was the period when recording came of age and many first recorded performances, still thought amongst the greatest even today, were set down by Fischer. Supreme among them were the first complete recording of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier and the Mozart concertos presented here as a budget priced 3CD set. Also included are most of Fisher's solo recordings of Mozart and his only recording of a Haydn concerto.
