Signed to Decca in 1963, Ashkenazy remains to this day the longest-serving artist on the label. He received a Grammy award for, among others, his Beethoven Piano Concertos with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Sir Georg Solti (1973) which are included in this set.
As one of the most renowned and revered pianists of our time Vladimir Ashkenazy has won acclaim for his penetrating insight and superlative technique. As an artist, his creative life encompasses a vast range of activities and he continues to offer inspiration to music-lovers across the world.

"From Ashkenazy, every page declares Rachmaninov's nationality, his indelibly Russian nature … Prévin works hand in glove with his soloist … the product of the greatest musical sympathy" - Gramophone on the Ashkenazy-Previn Rachmaninov cycle
 
"The complete Ashkenazy/Solti set of Beethoven concertos in one word is superb. The range of Ashkenazy's tone is tremendous … Sir Georg Solti's accompaniment is right on the spot and his Chicago orchestra is recorded with a fine depth of sound" - Gramophone on the Ashkenazy-Solti Beethoven cycle
