Though this means actually almost nothing - this is 1980 year edition - time...

As long as I understand there is no separate topic devoted to Medtner in this board.

I came to share unique record - please check Shura Cherkassky plays Medtner "Fairy Tale" Op. 34 No. 2

There are amazing records on Youtube:
Ignaz Friedman plays Friedman 5 Waltzes op.51
Ignaz Friedman plays Beethoven Sonata No.14, op.27. no.2
and many many others...
and especially

Ignaz Friedman - Grieg Piano Concerto
