another rarity on Liszt's piano!

Postby neopoiesis » Mon Jun 11, 2007 9:05 am

Dear PS,
I’m glad to send you another live-recording: Liszt’s ‘Sonettos’ performed by Francesco Zappalà on ‘Bösendorfer 250’ piano dating 1881 (the last piano belonged to Franz Liszt).
I hope you like it.
Ciao, Roberto Carnevale

I definitely liked it a lot and they are very well performed. Incredible that a 100+ grand can sound this good but I guess that the strings, nails hammers etc. have been replaced. A biography of Mr. Zappalà would be great.

The recordings are up on the site!
