Ivan Moravec's anniversary collection Portrait
Ivan Moravec, deemed by many the finest 20th-century Czech pianist, would have celebrated his 90th birthday on 9 November. Supraphon is marking the anniversary with the most complete collection of his recordings to date, titled Portrait. The release, encompassing 11 CDs, features the most significant and unique recordings Moravec made between 1962 and 2000 for Supraphon and several US labels. The set also included a DVD with a documentary and previously unseen footage from the Czech Television archives.
