Frederic Lamond - Rare Broadcasts

MR 52071 (2cd)

Frederic Lamond

Rare broadcasts and selected recordings

Works by Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin

Frederic Lamond, piano

Recorded 1921-1945


Frederic Lamond was born in Glasgow in 1868. As a teenager, he studied with Hans von Bülow; had lessons with Liszt at Weimar and Rome; was coached by Brahms; and was greatly influenced by Anton Rubinstein, with whom he was well acquainted. In addition to being an early champion of Brahms, Lamond is considered an authority on Beethoven\'s piano music and is a member of that small circle of Liszt pupils who had the opportunity to make records. This two-CD set includes two concerto broadcasts, never before available, and his acoustic recordings of Beethoven sonatas issued here for the first time on CD. The set also includes a fascinating spoken reminiscence by Lamond about Liszt.
