TAGLIAFERRO PLAYS CONCERTI



On this page, Magda Tagliaferro plays a handful of concerti and several chamber works. I love the Mozart recording from 1930 and the Fauré Ballade.  It is also interesting to hear her multiple performances of the Saint-Saens 5th concerto. And the Villa Lobos and Prokovief recordings are wonderful.

I have always loved the songs of Reynaldo Hahn but was unfamiliar with his piano concerto. and to hear him conduct his own music and that of Mozart is a special treat.
