Description
In this 1958 recording, Hungarian pianist Cziffra performs Liszt's first and second piano concertos and Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16.

"Cziffra play[s] the opening solo of the slow movement beautifully and the technical brilliance, of course, is everywhere beyond question…. Inside a domed edifice of unparalleled grandeur and glamour, ringmaster Vandernoot cracks his whip and the untamed wonder acrobat Cziffra the Czplendid performs every trick known to ivory-ticklers and then some, leaving his audience stunned by his dexterity, strength and colourful sense… On Liszt's 2nd Concerto Cziffra hits the hammers … and contributes playing that evokes the style of the composer as well as the mastery of a modern virtuoso."—Gramophone

"One of the most celebrated and individual piano virtuosos of the postwar decades in Europe, especially noted for his powers of improvisation and as a Liszt pianist."—All Music Guide
