The Danish pianist Victor Schiøler (1899-1967) was born in Copenhagen. His studies began early, first learning piano under his mother but then with piano giants Ignaz Friedman and Artur Schnabel. He made his debut in 1914, and from 1919 on he was regularly touring Europe. By the time he toured the USA after World War II, he had become the most celebrated and popular Danish pianist ever. His recording of the first Tchaikovsky piano concerto was the best ever sold classical recording in Denmark. Outside Denmark he was regarded as one of the finest examples of virtuoso and lyrical piano playing and he made numerous recordings on 78 rpm, and later re-recorded most of his repertoire in mono and in the end stereo LP records. As a chamber musician he was most sought after and the release here of the Schubert Trio with Henry Holst and cellist Erling Blondal Bengtsson is truly music making of the highest order.
