2001 release. In concert, pianist Paul Jacobs (1931-1983) unleashed a volatile side that was merely hinted at in his meticulous studio recordings. His examples of repertoire that had not been otherwise recorded reveal a fiery temperament and penetrating musical virtuosity that offer another perspective of a great artist. Also included is an example of his refined harpsichord playing. Jacobs had given these concert tapes to Teresa Sterne, his producer, who was also an early guiding light of Nonesuch Records; Sterne presented the tapes to Arbiter when she was mentoring the label during its inception. This is the first release of these concert recordings. Includes performances of compositions by Beethoven, Bach, Ferruccio Busoni, Manuel de Falla, Maurice Ravel, and Jacques Champion de Chambonnières.
