APR's Musique-Vérité label is devoted to live recordings. The exceptional musical interest and historical significance of these recordings have taken precedence over sonic considerations.

Since its foundation in 1986, Appian Publications & Recordings Ltd (to quote the full title) has won an enviable reputation as a quality label devoted predominantly—though not exclusively—to historic piano recordings. In particular APR has won countless laurels for the high standard of its 78rpm restoration work—"Transfers of genius" to quote one critic—as well as the detail and content of its booklets.

This second volume in a series which restores the live Carnegie Hall recordings of Simon Barere to the catalogue is devoted to a single recital given on the 9th March 1947. As such, it is one of the most comprehensively documented events in Barere’s career. Just three performances are missing—all Chopin: the Fantasie was followed by the Fourth Ballade while the Nocturne was preceded by the Third Scherzo and followed by four etudes (Opp. 10/1 & 8, Op. 25/7 and Op. 10/4). There might possibly have been additional encores to those presented here.

Ce second volume de la présente collection consacrée aux enregistrements de Simon Barere en concert au Carnegie Hall est dévolu à un seul récital donné le 9 mars 1947. En cela, il s’agit de l’événement musical le mieux documenté de la carrière de Barere. Il ne manque que trios interprétations, toutes de Chopin: la Fantaisie qui ouvrait le concert était suivie par la quatrième Ballade, et le Nocturne était précédé par le troisième Scherzo et suivi par quatre études (op.10/1 & 8, op.25/7 et Op.10/4). En outre, il est possible que d’autres bis aient également été donnés en plus de ceux présentés ici.

Diesem Teil der Serie, welche die Live-Aufnahmen Simon Bareres aus der Carnegie Hall wieder verfügbar macht, ist einem einzigen Konzert gewidmet, das am 9. März 1947 stattfand. Als solches ist es eines der umfässendst dokumentierten Ereignisse in Bareres Karriere. Gerade einmal drei Stücke fehlen, alle von Chopin: der eröffnenden Fantaisie folgte die Vierte Ballade, während dem Nocturne das Dritte Scherzo voranging, gefolgt von vier Etüden (Op. 10/1 & 8, Op. 25/7 und Op. 10/4). Möglicherweise gäbe es weitere Zugaben neben den hier vorgestellten.
