Since winning the inaugural Leeds International Piano Competition in 1963, Michael Roll has enjoyed a hugely successful career on the concert platform performing to audiences worldwide. His recorded legacy, however, is surprisingly small. This CD includes a previously unreleased and unedited 1978 studio performance of the Liszt sonata and a live recording of Beethoven’s ‘Appassionata’ from 2008.
