About the Artist
A sixth-generation pupil of Beethoven through his great teacher Maria Curcio (who was a favourite pupil of Schnabel), leading British pianist Anthony Goldstone has always felt a special affinity to the music of Franz Schubert. Having just completed a seven-CD cycle of all Schubert's original four-hand works with his wife Caroline Clemmow (Olympia OCD 671-7), and suddenly realising that he had now been playing the piano for fifty years, Goldstone decided that this was the time to commit his views of Schubert's great solo works to discs - notwithstanding the fact that others had done so before him.
Born in Liverpool, Goldstone studied with Derrick Wyndham at the Royal Manchester College of Music (which later honoured him with a Fellowship), later with Maria Curcio in London. In a career encompassing six continents, the Last Night of the Proms, many broadcasts and recordings (including the issue by the BBC on CD of his London Promenade Concert performance of Beethoven's fourth Piano Concerto).
