"Lost Genius" Ervin Nyiregyházi's new album!

Nyiregyházi Live, Vol 1: The Century Club of California, 1972

In the early 1970s, after decades in poverty and obscurity, Hungarian pianist Ervin Nyiregyházi started giving public recitals to help pay for his ninth wife's medical bills. His first full comeback recital took place at Century Club of California, in San Francisco, on December 17, 1972. He offered a large program including Brahms's F-minor sonata, three mazurkas and a prelude by Chopin, Debussy's “Pagodes,” and several works by Liszt.

In 2016 we obtained the reel-to-reel tapes owned by Nyiregyházi capturing the whole recital. The CD will include sleeve notes by Nyiregyházi’s biographer Kevin Bazzana, and previously unreleased photos drawn from the Takasaki Nyiregyházi archive, which now belongs to Sonetto Classics.

The album is now available from https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06X3ZK3FB, and many other distributors https://sonettoclassics.com/recordings.html.
