Description: The latest young piano warrior offered us by this label goes all 19th-century on us with his own “Rhapsody on Wagner Themes”, just like great pianist-composers of the past AND he replicates a 1956 recording of a similar genre piece by one of the great piano warriors of the past - György (or Georges) Cziffra. Abdiel Vázquez (piano).
