Great Pianists of Yesteryear

(For a comprehensive, master list of the complete contents of WRP, go to the Index page.)

This category features video footage and audio recordings (along with links to biographical information) of great pianists of the later 19th century to the later 20th century from the great artists of the pre-WW2 era, like early Arrau and Horowitz, to the great artists who rose to prominence in the post-WW2 years, like Richter and Gilels. Listening to and studying the playing styles of the great pianists of yesteryear (often referred to as the “Golden Age of Piano”) is fascinating and rewarding, which is indispensable to anyone aspiring to become a “well-rounded” pianist.
