Alexander Brailowsky (1896-1976) was a Russian pianist who studied with Busoni and Francis Planté, and made his debut in Paris in 1919. In 1926 he became a French citizen. Brailowsky was a Chopin specialist and gave recital series of the complete Chopin works in cities all over the world. His recording career began in the acoustical era and continued well past the introduction of stereo. Some critics have noted irregularities inRead more Brailowsky's playing, however his Chopin Waltzes are considered authoritative and have seldom been outdone since he recorded them in the 1960's. He gave the first complete Chopin cycle in history in Paris in 1924, using the composer’s own piano for part of the recital. He then went on to present a further thirty recital cycles of Chopin’s music in cities all over the world. Read less
