Fritz Busch was not what the public frequently calls a “recording artist.” His studio recordings are severly limited, and he recorded with record labels long defunct today. This collection assembles all his Beethoven recording made in the United States of America — only one of which was a studio recording, which was not published during his lifetime. The final track is one of a total of nine surviving 78’s recorded by Busch in mid-1919, and the only segment of the Eroica Busch recorded in his career.

Each track was carefully remastered by Andrew Rose in close association with Dr. Jürgen Schaarwächter, the Max Reger Institute and the Busch Brothers Archive.
