Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Anton Rubinstein was the only nineteenth-century pianist ever to be seriously compared with Liszt. Sadly, he died before the age of recording and, sadder, most of his enormous output of music in all genres disappeared with him. It seems high time to revive such a delightful trifle as his Valse-caprice of 1870 which held sway in the salons of Europe for a good half-century before the tide of fashion bore it away.
