The cover of this eight-disc EMI set proclaims Walter Gieseking to be the "Poet of the Piano," and perhaps he was when these recordings were made in the early '50s. Certainly, there's plenty of poetry in his playing here, with deep beauty in his touch, warm colors in his tone, and tremendous imagination in his interpretations.
