Description: A brilliant, globetrotting pianist, Katski performed for 76 of his 82 years and provided himself with music as challenging and rewarding to play for the pianist as it was to hear for his audiences. Several of these pieces give an idea of the technique he must have possessed and are, not surprisingly, in the Chopin-Liszt axis of Romanticism. Sławomir Dobrzański (piano), Agustín Muriago (four hands).
