Lilya Zilberstein. Anton Gerzenberg
Brahms: all Hungarian Dances

Brahms' most popular works are not known to be his own: the "Hungarian Dances". That is why he also insisted that they appear without an opus number and only with the note "set by J.B.". Lilya Zilberstein and her son Anton Gerzenberg, who won the Concours Géza Anda in 2021, present all 21 dances together – with the most famous at the end. The "Paganini Variations" published by Brahms as "Studies for Pianoforte" find a counterpart in a brilliant cycle of variations by the Viennese etude master Carl Czerny.

Followed by artist talk with Anselm Cybinski in the Festivalzentrum
