Earl Wild's renown as a concert pianist has eclipsed his equal success as a composer and conductor. Like Liszt and Rachmaninoff, he is a master not of the one discipline only, but of all three. And the magnitude of his work as a composer of original works, such as his 1962 Easter oratorio Revelations and his two full-length ballets (1934 and 1936), not to mention the many orchestral works he composed for documentaries on the ABC radio network during the 1950s and 1960s, has tended also to eclipse his vast work as a dazzling transcriber for the piano. Indeed, it is only now being acknowledged that he is "the finest transcriber of our time".
