JULIUS KATCHEN : LA REEDITION DECCA

Julius KATCHEN aurait eu 90 ans cet été, si un cancer foudroyant ne l'avait emporté en 1969, il avait tout juste 42 ans. Un piano magnifique, virtuose mais poétique, puissant mais sensible, qui fait merveille dans tout le répertoire que le jeune Américain installé à Paris a eu le temps de graver, dès ses 20 ans.
