"...one of the last pianists in the grand romantic tradition of Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Rubinstein"
Beethoven The Late Sonatas
The American pianist Barbara Nissman is a musician of the old school, with a great romantic style close to Rachmaninov. Her interpretations of the last three Beethoven sonatas – on her own label Three Oranges have sweep and power... she finds a direct path to the optimism that glows in the heart of music. Performances of such thrills and excitement.
