Stanisaw Skrowaczewski will celebrate his 90th birthday on October 3, 2013. To mark this occasion, OehmsClassics brought together all the CDs he's recorded for the label into a Deluxe Edition.

Cumulative momentum and thoughtful detail characterize Arrau’s Beethoven and Schumann while the extraordinary technical finish of his Liszt transcends mere virtuosity and bravura.
