Hi Nourdin,

It is true that Wilhelm Kempff had something very special to say in the core classical repertoire like Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, Brahms, etc, and it is good for a young player to want to be inspired by his unique and luminous art.

But you will not find recordings of him here. We have only recordings from pianists (be it amateur or professional) who choose to take part in the site and donate their recordings for free. It would be illegal to host any recordings that have been commercially released.

Nonetheless, welcome to Piano Society, and I hope you will still find things here useful to you.

Hi Nourdin, make sure you check out his recordings of his own transcriptions of Bach organ music.
It's one of my top 10 desert island CDs.
