Andrey Gugnin (Piano)

To the 150th birthday Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938) is one of the greatest keyboard virtuosos in music history. In the first quarter of the 20th century, his name was, so to speak, synonymous with the piano. The child prodigy had taught himself to play the piano almost entirely by himself. For Sergej Rachmaninoff, the pianist was “the only musician of his time who made a lasting and real contribution to the further development of piano music This production with Andrey Gugnin is a carefully compiled homage to Godowsky’s 150th birthday and presents a selection of pieces dedicated to him for solo piano, many of them as first recordings.
