BRAILOWSKY PLAYS LISZT



Brailowsky plays Liszt beautifully and delicately with great élan.  It is unusual playing in that this virtuoso pianist seems to have resisted the obvious virtuosity in the music of Liszt in favor of the delicate and subtle elements of the piano writing.

Wonderful performnces of works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Scriabin and others follow the Liszt recordings below.

For Brailowsky's Chopin and Brailowsky playing concerti, follow these links.
