The recorded legacy of Albert Wolff is one of the most sought-after by collectors. Of Dutch parentage but born in Paris, Wolff was something of a polymath: pianist, organist, conductor and composer with a long career in recording studios beginning in 1920.

His first recordings for Decca, started in the summer of 1951.

This collection includes Wolff's much-praised versions of the Charpentier and Massenet picture-postcard suites as well as the thrilling music of Lalo's Redemption and the searing (and very rare) recordings of instrumental music from Massenet's Werther. The mono versions of the Franck and Lalo pieces were never published, so those 1956 recordings had to wait nearly twenty years for their eventual (stereo) publication on the Decca 'Eclipse' imprint in August 1975.
