Emil Gilels in Prague.
Pianist Emil Gilels, like Svjatoslav Richter, his fellow citizen from Odessa, liked to visit the city of Prague, the city that adored Mozart. There, they felt free to set aside their Slavic repertoire for tributes to the composer of the ‘Magic Flute’. We get to hear the following: Brahms:
- Ballades (4), Op. 10
- Fantasies (7 piano pieces), Op. 116
- Piano Sonata No. 15 in F major, K533/494
Performed by Emil Gilels (piano) Gilels plays here the Schumannesque Ballades, by the young Brahms and the Fantasias Op. 116. Mozart’s Piano Sonata K533/494 has not been issued before. Tags: Johannes Brahms, Mozart, Sonata, Ballades Op 10, Fantasie
