Ο Πολωνός πιανίστας και συνθέτης Ignaz Friedman, γεννημένος τον Φεβρουάριο του 1882, ήταν ένας ακόμα μυθικός βιρτουόζος στην παράδοση του Chopin. Η εποχή της ακμής του – αρχές με μέσα 20ου αι.- συμπίπτει με εκείνην του Godowsky.
Οι συνθέσεις του δεν κατόρθωσαν να εισχωρήσουν στο ρεπερτόριο των ρεσιτάλ – μάλλον όχι δίκαια, όπως ακούμε από αυτές τις δυο [από το Drei Klavierstucke, op. 33] σε εξαιρετική απόδοση από τον Andrey Gugnin.

Polish pianist and composer Ignaz Friedman, born February 1882, was another mythical virtuoso in the Chopin tradition. The era of its heyday – early to mid-20th century – coincides with that of Godowsky.
His compositions did not manage to penetrate the recital repertoire – rather unfairly, as we hear from these two [from Drei Klavierstucke, op. 33], in excellent performance by Andrey Gugnin.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
