Notes & Reviews:

ervin Nyiregyhazi is largely forgotten today, but he was one of the greatest and most idiosyncratic pianists of the twentieth century, and his eccentric personality and bizarre career have few parallels in the history of music. These late concert recordings, all but four released here for the first time, are representative of Nyiregyhazi's art, and should help to rehabilitate a lost genius whose reputation has rarely been matched.
