Yep, Kapell was that bloody great. The disc opens with a Beethoven Concerto No. 2, which Kapell recorded with Vladimir Golschmann when he was 24. The young Kapell takes a piece that even Beethoven thought wasn't all that hot and plays it as if it's a masterpiece. Maybe the Liszt is the disc's pièce de résistance, and maybe Kapell's performances are of the transcendental variety of virtuosity but Kapell's interpretations of the Schubert dances are truly transcendental. He takes tiny little pieces and turns them into works of sublime genius and that's what's the hubbub, bub.
