Underground Sounds

An unfairly forgotten Danish master pianist! Arne Skjold Rasmussen was one of the finest Danish musicians and a truly virtuoso pianist. Nerves and the lack of interest in the concert halls kept him away from the audience. As a professor in piano at the Royal Danish Music Academy he was much sought after. The whole idea of making recordings he detested and his discography is small. Here are all the solo recordings he did for the Danish TONO label. There are no concerto recordings and only a small handful of chamber music recordings done shortly before he died. His Beethoven sonatas, sadly only those on this 2 CD set, are among the most convincing and overwhelmingly authentic. He was brought up in the Carl Nielsen tradition and his rare Nielsen recordings are probably the closest we will ever get to that Danish composer. Extensive notes from the Skjold Rasmussen specialist Jonas Barlyng and the high class transfers by Claus Byrith underlines the importance of this piano release. Remember the other releases in this series 3 sets featuring Danish Women Pianists One with pioneer Danish pianists and now 6 volumes with the great pianist Victor Schioler.
