Product Description

Lost Recordings from Devialet present a collection of five previously unreleased Emil Gilels recitals, issued for the first time as a box set of 7 180g vinyl. Original numbered pressing is limited to 100 copies with the complimentary digital file download. This set includes an original photograph of E Gilels.

This box set offers rare insight into the talent of an incomparable artist through a rich and varied repertoire. Restored and remastered with remarkable skill, these recordings are a testament to the immense beauty of his tone and style, captured within the exceptional acoustics of the Concertgebouw.

Emil Gilels

Emil Gilels' recitals feature piano works performed with such depth, sincerity and skill that they leave an indelible mark on listeners. Lost Recording is immensely honoured to have brought them back to life in close collaboration with his grandson, Kirill Gilels. This collection is an enduring tribute to the mastery of a classical legend and one of the most celebrated pianists of the 20th century. His phenomenal career took flight in 1938 when he won the Eugène Ysaÿe competition in Brussels after which Concertgebouw welcomed him initiating a longstanding relationship with some of the greatest conductors including Mravinsky, Maazel, Jochum, Bernstein, Böhm and Karajan.

Rich and pure, profound and fluid, Gilel’s unmistakable sound serves a musicality that is both immaculate and self-evident. Every single detail is simple, sculpted and extremely eloquent. From Mozart to Prokofiev, Beethoven to Chopin and Bach to Brahms, he excels at his art. Despite invitations to perform on the world’s most prestigious stages, he held a special fondness for the Netherlands. Kirill Gilels remembers: “Each performance was a resounding success. He always made sure to present the best of the piano repertoire to the sophisticated audiences at the Concertgebouw.”

Lost Recordings

To recreate the powerful emotions of a live experience, the Lost Recordings collection revives legendary artists. It took a team of highly skilled sound archaeologists over a year to find the first legendary recordings, buried in the immensity of the world's sound archives. Using Devialet Expert technology, Fondamenta developed Phoenix Mastering, a unique audio excavation process designed to recover the full richness of analogue tapes.

Vinyl is the ideal medium for capturing the warmth and character of a vintage recording, it takes you right to the core of the perfectly rendered music. 180g vinyl is used for the pressing which is obviously a natural choice for such treasured recordings. Produced by one of the finest vinyl manufacturers in the world, it features an exclusive collector’s edition design.
