Paderewski was one of the great pianists of all time. It is beyond imagination to think that someone born in 1860 is still available in these recordings. His golden period was probably the 1890s and these recordings were made just before the first world war, or after that, when he had been President of Poland. So the technique is not always like our pianists of today, but surely if you listen you can hear his amazing colours. He must have had charisma and a personality of immense proportions to have created such a wonderfully international following. Listen and try to get inside the recording beyond the rather old sound of the original 78s.
