GREAT PIANISTS PLAY



The Great Pianists Play page contains links to many wonderful performances by astonishing musicians.  The pianists represented here are men. 

This link will take you to the Great Women Pianists Play page which contains a number of videos offering performances by many great women pianists of bygone eras.  These videos have been put together by someone whose YouTube name is gullivior, who shares my own interest in the all too often ignored great women pianists of the past, and to whom sincere thanks are due.

And that page, in turn, contains links to many more pages of performances by women pianists of the highest order.  I hope it will prompt you to ask yourselves why you have never heard of them.

Enjoy hearing all these great pianists play by following the links below.
