Description: The first major pianist to make recordings (beginning in 1899), you many know Grünfeld as the author of some glittering Johann Strauss waltz paraphrases, but he also wrote quite a lot of the expected salon-style and virtuosic pieces which tourning pianists needed for their own use and these are the source of this recital. Doris Adam (piano).
