Claudio Arrau, Wilhelm Backhaus, Alexander Brailowsky, Robert Casadesus, Byron Janis, Wilhelm Kempff International Piano Festival, A Benefit Concert Everest, United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees ‎– UN S 2, Vinyl, LP, Stereo, US, 1964. This is an absolutely enthralling concerto which really deserves to be part of standard repertoire. It's got everything you'd want in a Romantic piano concerto - great tunes, dazzling virtuosity, and poetry galore. The slow movement is stunningly gorgeous! Hough and Foster give a spectacular performance of this unjustly neglected work.

That is very little compared to the recorded legacies of other conductors of international stature. The situation changed for collectors of recorded music when Cantelli began to give concerts in America. Whereas, in the UK, only five of Cantelli’s concerts were broadcast.

Reference: UNHCR 01 January 1965 document < http://www.unhcr.org/3ae68c644.html > at its paragraph 145:

"145. The main single feature of UNHCR’s Public Information and Programme Support activities was the release of the second long-playing record “International Piano Festival” in October 1964. The first record “All-Star Festival”, issued in February 1963, had brought together thirteen popular singers and by the end of 1964 had yielded total net proceeds of some $1.4 million. Following the same pattern in the classical field, “International Piano Festival” presents a one-hour benefit concert by six eminent pianists: Claudio Arrau, Wilhelm Backhaus, Alexander Brailowsky, Robert Casadesus, Byron Janis and Wilhelm Kempff. At the end of the year, 100,000 copies had been bought in Europe and Japan - sales are now also starting in other continents. As with “All-Star Festival” a number of countries waived customs duties or taxes on the importation or sale of the record, thus substantially increasing UNHCR’s proceeds. As part of the promotional campaign, UNHCR produced a television film and supplied photographs and other publicity materials. United Nations information centres and TAB Resident Representatives in many parts of the world responded enthusiastically to UNHCR’s request for their co-operation in promoting the sale of the record and often helped to achieve outstanding results. Private groups, particularly in Scandinavia, also co-operated most effectively on this project. Apart from their fund-raising value, UNHCR’s phonograph records have proved successful in bringing information on the work of UNHCR to the attention of many people who would otherwise be unaware of the problems of refugees."
