Who knows this pianist ?


I’ve found an old 78 record with unreadable labels – Is there someone who could recognise the recording ? It is some paraphrase on a Johann Strauss composition. I also hear some slavonic elements, very interesting ! The other side of the record is to much damaged.. It reminds me of Emil von Sauer, Arthur Friedheim, Arthur de Greef, Conrad Ansorge, Eugen d’Albert, Moriz Rosenthal, Paderewski or even Leschetizky ?? what about Godowsky.. rodolforavissant@hotmail.com some pianists-composers who made — or have made — piano transcriptions / arrangements of other composers’ works: Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Ferruccio Busoni, Moritz Moszkowski, Leopold Godowsky, Sergei Rachmaninov, Percy Grainger, Myra Hess, Wilhelm Backhaus, Glen Gould, Liberace, Vladimir Horowitz, Wilhelm Kempff, Gyorgy Cziffra, Earl Wild, Mikhail Pletnev, Marc-Andre Hamelin, Boris Berezovsky, Arcadi Volodos some pianists-composers who made piano transcriptions / arrangements of their own works: Peter (Pyotr) Tchaikovsky, Edvard Grieg, Maurice Ravel, Sergei Prokofiev, Igor Stravinsky
