MARK FARAGO PLAYS
the piano music of Liszt, Rachmaninoff and Chopin




On this page, Mark Farago plays some of the great works for piano by Franz Liszt, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Frédéric François Chopin. Take the time to listen to them all. They are magnificent works performed by phenomenally gifted and still quite unknown pianist.

One day, Mark Farago must and will be as well known and as highly regarded as any of the great pianists of our age.
