In a career spanning several decades, Roger Woodward has established himself as one of the most revered and adventurous pianists of our time.
In this new collection, ABC Classics presents over 7 hours of recordings, many of them never heard before, bringing together seminal interpretations of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic repertoire alongside rare recordings of contemporary works.
The set features leading international conductors including Charles Dutoit, Edo de Waart, Diego Masson and David Porcelijn, and Australian orchestras including the Sydney, Adelaide and Queensland Symhony Orchestras.
The release of this 7-CD set coincides with the launch of Woodward’s autobiography Beyond Black and White: My Life in Music, published by ABC Books. This is the remarkable story of one of the world’s leading musicians. In Beyond Black And White, the author documents a rich life’s journey in this part memoir, part manifesto: from boyhood lessons at the piano in Miss Pope’s lounge room, to working with the world’s most celebrated musicians, conductors and orchestras in a career that spans more than fifty years in Europe, China, Japan and the Americas.
