The Welte Mignon Mystery Vol. XXII

Alfred Reisenauer

today playing his 1905 interpretations.
Works by Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Schumann

EAN/barcode: 4009850022107

Franz Liszt is supposed to have said of his pupil Reisenauer that his style was very similar to his own, "but without imitating him" (from the CD booklet). Reisenauer was born in 1863 in Königsberg and died in 1907 in a hotel in Latvia. In keeping with historical performance practice, which has long since been overtaken by Romanticism, this series also offers many original impressions of how people really played at that time in the 19th century: with recordings made long before recording technology had found its feet!
