BRAHMS HANDEL VARIATIONS II
Variations and Fugue on a theme by Handel, Op 24



This page, Brahms Handel Variations II, offers more fine performances of this great work for piano by one of my small handful of desert island composers.  I have spread them over three pages to reduce the otherwise long download time.  My own favorites appear on all three pages. And just because I have not singled one out does not mean I don't think it especially good.

This page offers performances by pianists born from 1914 to 1944. To access the other pages click on the following links:
