Poldi Mildner

8.99 € 4.49 €

Poldi Mildner was one of the last vestiges of the Golden Age of pianism. A phenomenal prodigy, she studied with some of the greatest teachers of the first half of the 20th century — Rosenthal, Schnabel, Teichmüller, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev. Our unique CD collects her recordings for the German radio in the 1950s. None of these radio performances have been published before.
