Lazare-Lévy

8.99 € 4.49 €

Lazare-Lévy ’s recordings of the classical piano repertoire document the highest artistic standing and, as such, take an immovable place in the history of pianism. He was a pupil of Louis Diémer at the Paris Conservatoire and was in turn to rise to a comparable eminence as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of Parisian teachers. These are both radio studio and live recordings from 1950 until 1963 which have until now remained unpublished. They reflect very accurately his strongest reportoirial strengths.
