Albert Ferber - Decca Recordings 1945 - 1951 (CD)

Born in Lucerne in 1911, Albert Ferber studied with a pupil of Alfred Cortot and often played for Rachmaninov in Switzerland. International critics visiting the 1939 Lucerne Festival were impressed by ‘an exceptional Swiss pianist … who also showed in works of Schubert and Schumann some uncommon pianistic gifts’.
