Gottschalk (1829-1869), Grande Fantaisie triomphale sur l’hymne national brésilien


Born in New Orleans, the cradle of jazz, Louis Moreau Gottschalk is a virtuoso pianist and colourful composer. Nicknamed the American Liszt, he has the verve, lyricism and virtuosity of the Hungarian master. He likes to surround himself with legends, travels around the world to play his works and please kings, and organizes monster concerts with several hundred pianos on stage. His works are inspired by the countries he travels through, and often prefigure jazz or ragtime.


Discover the Grande Fantaisie triomphale sur l’hymne national brésilien in the interpretations of Eudoxia de Barros and Clelia Iruzun.
