About

In honor of World Piano Day, held on the 88th day of the year to honor the instrument's 88 keys, join us in an 88-minute celebration of legendary pianists and the pieces we love to hear them play! Curated specially for you, this compilation brings together works by Chopin, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, Brahms, and other favorite composers in the hands of some of the finest interpreters of every recorded era: Vladimir Horowitz and Arthur Rubinstein to Van Cliburn and Emil Gilels, Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim to Maria João Pires and Grigory Sokolov, Yuja Wang and Daniil Trifonov to Alexandra Dovgan and Yunchan Lim… and that's just for starters. Sit back and enjoy this pianistic pantheon!
