100 éve született Cziffra György zongoraművész

Egyedülálló zenei tehetsége Liszt Ferencéhez hasonlítható, főleg káprázatos zongoratechnikai és improvizációs készsége miatt. Liszt és Dohnányi nyomdokain egy olyan előadói hagyományt képviselt, amelyben elevenen él a bravúros improvizációs könnyedség és a különböző stílusok szintetizálásának magától értetődő képessége. Széles repertoárján elsősorban Liszt, Schumann, Chopin, Grieg, Brahms és Rahmanyinov művei szerepeltek. 1921. november 5-én Budapesten született. Dohnányi Ernő mentorálásával nyolcévesen került be a Zeneakadémiára, ahol Weiner Leó, Ferenczi György és Keéri-Szántó Imre voltak a tanárai. A II. világháborúban szovjet fogságba került, majd [...]
