Pianist: Gyorgy (Georges) Cziffra playing Liszt's "Grand Galop Chromatique," in E-flat major S. 219. I read on someone elses video that this was live from Japan.. thats incorrect. This was filmed on September 25th, 1963 at the "ORTF," (Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision Française) in Paris.
Cziffra was mostly affiliated with Liszt seeing as how he had the immense technical prowess necessary to play such "romps" as this. He was big headed too, hahaha.
this piece was composed in 1838, same year as "La Campanella," guess Liszt was feeling -FRISKA- baddum tshh! (bad joke) :/
