With some concerts, one is not sure afterwards if they were perhaps a dream – Paul Badura-Skoda’s Sydney Recital of 1982 may be such an experience for some concert goers. The mature artist returned down-under 30 years after his Australian debut, thus completing the circle in one of the world’s most beautiful opera houses and achieving glorious sonic architecture there at least as magnificent as the actual architecture of the opera house itself, with works of Bach, Brahms, Bartók and Debussy. These works are dear to the heart of the great Austrian pianist, who came up with everything from childlike intimacy to percussive fireworks, spanning the entire range of his technical and interpretative art. It has been preserved on a GENUIN CD: a truly magical evening.

"In this recording of the March 1982 Sydney recital, he relies in all the works on a wide variety of techniques to shape the sounds while always achieving the impression of profile and fullness."(CD recommendation on Deutschlandradio Kultur)
