Branka Musulin

8.99 €

As a celebrated pupil of Alfred Cortot and Yvonne Lefébure, Branka Musulin was a major performer from the 1950s to 1970s and beginning in 1956 embarked on an international career. Sadly, she recorded very little commercially and she is a largely forgotten name from the last century. Our discovery of rare recordings brings her artistry back into the present. These extremely rare German radio recordings have never been issued before.
