Notes & Reviews:

Elisabeth Leonskaja holds a distinguished position among the leading international pianists. Of Russian origin, she studied under Jacob Milstein at the Moscow Conservatory, and her sensational debut at the 1979 Salzburg Festival rapidly brought her name to the attention of western audiences. Here she performs Brahms' last music for solo piano on MDG's legendary 1901 Steinway piano. These pieces have been called Brahms' last will and testament as a piano composer and are among the most challenging pieces ever composed for the instrument.
