Alexander Borovsky

8.99 € 6.75 €

Although he was veteran of some 2,500 world-wide concerts in his 47 years of performing, Alexander Borovsky never achieved quite the reputation he deserved, but that happened also to other once famous pianists like Barentzen and Uninsky. Borovsky paid more attention to romance and drama than to linear coherence, using lots of rubato and flexibility of rhythm to achieve a variety of stunning effects. This CD contains a surviving live recorded recital in Paris, France in 1953, that has never been published before and aims to bring his artistry back into the present.
