The Art of Magda Tagliaferro
HTGCD277 – 5060332660957
It is astonishing that Magda Tagliaferro’s name is unknown to many music-lovers. Perhaps never has there been a pianist with such style, such buoyant, subtle rhythm and such controlled energy, such swagger and sensuality. These qualities are displayed here in the rare 78rpm recordings she made in the 1930s – the much sought-after Reynaldo Hahn Piano Concerto and performances of her beloved Schumann, Debussy and the music of Spain and South America. The transfers were originally produced by Roger Beardsley for Pearl and the booklet includes an informative and affectionate note by Jeremy Siepmann.
