HD-Vinyl Mono 24/96 (EMI) Edward Grieg/Franz Liszt – Piano Concerti – György Cziffra

Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this gem
Hungarian born György Cziffra was one of the most celebrated virtuosos of the post-war decades in Europe, noted for his powers of improvisation as a Liszt pianist. The Grieg Concerto is typical of Cziffra’s ‘mercurial quality’ while the Liszt Concerto is very much in the style with which Liszt ‘loved to astonish his adoring audiences’.
Cziffra’s legendary virtuosity and near-superhuman work ethic tended to overshadow the inner turmoil of a man who suffered deeply under the Nazi oppression, and then later from the post-war Hungarian regime, which eventually drove him into exile.

  1. Wow! What knockout performances.
    The clarity Cziffra’s playing on these recordings from 1959 is stunning.
    The (mono) sound quality is fabulous.
    Thanks for a great upload.
