This 4 CD set has been released in anticipation of the forthcoming centenary of the birth of Emil Gilels in 2016. Melodiya have collected 'unreleased recordings from original tapes' of collaborations the pianist had with other Russian artists. Piano duets, instrumental duets and chamber works comprise this valuable anthology. The recordings were made over a thirteen year period between 1946 and 1959. Melodiya states in the booklet that this is the beginning of an 'expanded edition' of the pianist's legacy - an exciting prospect.

Born in Odessa, now part of Ukraine, in 1916, Gilels did not hail from a particularly musical family, but they had a piano. The young Emil took to the instrument and underwent strict musical training in his formative years, as was the way in Russia in those days. After graduating from the Odessa Conservatory in 1935, he went on to study with the great Soviet pianist and pedagogue Heinrich Neuhaus in Moscow. His conscientiousness and early grounding in scales and arpeggios formed the foundation of his magnificent technique. Gilels was to become a keyboard titan. This reputation was founded not just on a fabulous technique; his tremendous gifts were dedicated to the service of the music he was playing. He did not let his virtuosity stand in the way of good taste and style, and his interpretations were always free of mannerisms and eccentricities.
