Wilhelm Walter Friedrich Kempff (1895–1991) was a major German pianist and composer. Although his repertoire included Bach, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and Brahms, he was particularly well known for his interpretations of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert. His Mozart was also memorable as demonstrated on this well-filled Praga Digitals CD of performances from 1960-62.
