180-gram double LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
One of Reference Recordings' all-time best recorded and best-selling albums!
Connoisseurs of great piano playing will love this classic reissue. A reclusive cult figure who records even less often than he plays in public, Nojima is Japan's most celebrated concert pianist and a Cliburn Competition Silver Medal winner. Long out of print-brought back by popular demand!
A contemporary pianist that evokes the wonders of the golden age of pianists typified by Horowitz, Godowsky, Lhevinne, and the other giants of that period, Nojima performs with Japan's major orchestras, including frequent appearances with the New Japan Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony, Kyushu Symphony, and Gunma Symphony in domestic subscription performances and as a soloist on overseas tours. His 1988 recording Minoru Nojima Plays Liszt quickly became a reference work, named Best Recording of the Month by Stereo Review, which described it as "a stunning demonstration of technique put at the service of profoundly musical ends."
