P0892. LEONARD SHURE: The Jordan Hall Recitals, incl. Brahms, Schumann & Chopin. 2-Bridge 9374, Live Performances, 1977-80, Jordan Hall, Boston. – 090404937422


“Leonard Shure (1910-1995) was a superb musician, an important pianist, and an uncompromising and influential teacher. His legacy as a performer lies in a small but significant number of commercial recordings. This release augments that legacy with live performances recorded during his faculty recitals in New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall late in his life. Shure recorded the Brahms Phantasien on 78's for Vox in the mid 1940's, but these performances were never remastered for release on LP or CD. He recorded the Schumann Fantasy on an Epic LP a decade later, in the mid - 1950's, but this too has never been transferred to CD. The present discs have been issued in collaboration with the pianist's family, annotated by former Boston Globe music critic, Richard M. Dyer, and restored by the noted engineer, Adam Abeshouse.”
