It may be true, as one critic put it, that Backhaus could pin a Chopin Mazurka back by the ears, and belabor it unmercifully, but in music that engaged his truest feelings, and particularly in the great masterpieces of the German Classical and Romantic repertoire, he could create a unique nimbus and fullness of expression. And this, backed by a monumental mastery that knew no technical limitations, has always ensured Backhaus's place among the keyboard immortals.
