Lilya Zilberstein plays Brahms
The concert that Lilya Zilberstein performed on a C. Bechstein concert grand piano in the Bad Homburg Schlosskirche was thankfully recorded live. For her interpretationsof Brahms Variations Opus 21 and the eight piano pieces Opus 76 present the famous pianist at the height of her art. Ernst Hoffmann wrote the appropriate sentences: "For Lilya Zilberstein it doesn't make any difference whether she plays a short piano piece of an extensive sonata. Dynamic contrasts are great, construction symphonic. She succeeds convincingly in setting free the enormous pressure in many phrases, which Brahms is always able to exploit."
