When we stop to realize that he was born in 1035 just two years after Brahms was born
and was still living and actually performing during that year of the reproducing piano the music and musicians of the 900 century seem to be brought into a much closer focus. The piano rules you will hear today were recorded by sad songs between one thousand fifteen and one thousand seventeen and with one exception are his own compositions. After you hear his performance I believe you will agree with me that he was still a remarkable pianist even though he was more than 80 years old at the time he recorded these works for the new art piano songs compositions cover almost the entire range of musical literature.
