Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Although Ignacy Friedman studied composition and produced a mountain of now-forgotten music, no piano buff is unaware of his absolutely wonderful piano playing. Friedman, a pupil of Leschetitzky, left us some unique recordings. For his own use, and for his pianist friends, he produced a set of Six Viennese Dances between 1916 and 1920 ‘on motifs by Eduard Gärtner’, about which gentleman scrupulous research has revealed next to nothing! This second dance of the series is dedicated to Isidor Philipp.
