2016年為已故鋼琴家卡欽90歲冥誕,為此DECCA特別發行這套專輯以為紀念。專輯共有35張CD,收錄他生前為DECCA唱片公司所完成的所有錄音,內容涵蓋莫札特、貝多芬、舒曼、蕭邦、穆索斯基、李斯特、布拉姆斯、柴可夫斯基、拉赫曼尼諾夫、普羅可菲夫、蓋希文、拉威爾、聖桑等人的作品。其中有六張為首度以CD格式發行的專輯,更包含兩張未曾發行過的錄音。

美國鋼琴家朱利亞斯.卡欽,於1926年8月15日誕生於紐澤西州長灘。10歲時便以天才兒童之姿竄起,無論是獨奏或室內樂都表現出異於常人的成熟度。他的音樂教育乃是由他曾任教於莫斯科音樂院的外公與外婆所啟蒙。在1937年與指揮大師奧曼第(Eugene Ormandy)的會晤之後,大師立即邀請卡欽與他所指揮的費城愛樂演出莫札特鋼琴協奏曲,造成樂界莫大讚賞與迴響,當時卡欽也只是一位11歲的稚齡孩童而已。次年他在紐約市政廳舉辦個人第一場演奏會,當時《紐約時報》樂評人曾讚譽這個12歲的孩子「非凡天賦誘使人不假思索地妄下預言」。

然而正當卡欽的演奏事業前景一片看好之際,其雙親卻毅然中止了他所有的公開演出,以期他能專心完成正常學業教育,而卡欽也僅以短短三年的時間,就於哈佛大學取得哲學與英國文學雙料學位。1945年後卡欽繼續公開演出,次年在巴黎於十一天內舉辦了七場音樂會引發轟動,歐洲各地爭相邀請他前往出演出。為了表示對卡欽才華的肯定,法國政府更提供獎學金讓他到法國學習,其國際演奏生涯也就此開始,DECCA亦於1946年10月30日首度與他簽約合作錄音。卡欽自20歲至1969年逝世都一直住在巴黎,平常很少回美國,然而就在其演奏生涯正要發光發熱之際,他卻因癌症於1969年4月29日在巴黎逝世,享年僅42歲。

除了詮釋布拉姆斯為其經典,卡欽擅長的還包含蓋希文、巴托克等極需超絕技巧之曲目。與生俱來的俄羅斯血統,也讓他很自然的能輕鬆駕馭柴可夫斯基、拉赫曼尼諾夫與普羅高菲夫等人的大型作品。藝術理念日趨成熟之後,他也經常安排貝多芬晚期奏鳴曲與《狄亞貝里》主題變奏。其氣勢龐大的觸鍵、靈活的技巧、乃至於敏銳非凡的情感鋪陳,都令他成為一位頗具代表性的貝多芬演奏家。

六零年代他專注心力於布拉姆斯,並為Decca留下布拉姆斯鋼琴獨奏曲全集錄音。這套錄音獲得1967年法國唱片大獎的肯定,自然也包含在這套全集當中。在廣泛的演奏曲目裡,卡欽兼長各個時期的作品,驚人的彈奏技巧與藝術天賦奠定他名列二十世紀偉大鋼琴家之一的不朽地位。
