Alexander Brailowsky ∙ The Paris Recital 1949


Alexander Brailowsky (1896-1976) acquired a sort of collar around his neck with the name ‘Chopin specialist’. That label was wrong, as this present CD testifies as well as many other recordings. This is an exceptionally rare CD which made their first appearance ever and presents the great Russian pianist at his best supported by flawless technique, great musicianship, clarity and above all tremendous involvement.
