In this 1957 recording, twenty-year old Vladimir Ashkenazy performs the Mephisto Waltz, S.514, by Franz Liszt. I created this music video from the LP shown above, released to the public in the USA in 1959 as Ashkenazy was making his debut tour of the United States. This LP -- with other works by Liszt, as well as Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, was only the second album recorded by the pianist.

So that there is no question in the mind of the listener, I rely principally on images of the the LP and LP jacket in order to document the authenticity of historically important recordings such as these.
