Having been very taken by his playing on an Audite live disc, I found this from his stereo cycle;
containing the Pathetique, Moonlight, Appassionata, Les Adieux, Pastoral, Tempest, and Waldstein
sonatas. One possibly-unfortunate thing is the recordings are apparently treated with something
called 'AMSI Surround Imaging' from Emil Berliner studios in Hanover, but it (luckily!) sounds pretty good
to me. A nice compilation disc, and the catalog # is 467 487-2, for anyone interested..
So glad to have found out about Backhaus here- I think his playing is often glorious, and
makes some others sound contrived.
