Bulgarian/French pianist Alexis Weissenberg sadly passed away earlier this year at age 84. Our new CD of his music, appropriately from the “Great Pianists of the 20th century" series (1998, Philips Classics).
Weissenberg’s playing focused on tonality and clarity, and he was especially interested in the romantics. This album features some of his best works, including Bach, Chopin, Czerny, Debussy, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Scarlatti, Scriabin, and Stravinsky.
This piece is Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata no. 3 in A minor, op. 28, which allows Weissenberg to really showcase his virtuosity. Check out the CD!
