Gina Bachauer, Athens 1967

Enough with opera, bitches! I need a break!
This is a very rare recording ripped off the archives of the Greek Broadcast Network (ERT). Its a recital that the legendary greek pianist Gina Bachauer gave in Athens, at the Hotel Grande Bretagne (!!) in 1967 with Princess Irene (who was her pupil...and who also was a princess . . . Greece was still a kingdom then).

Concerto for two pianos and Orchestra in E flat major

(Gina Bachauer, Born in Athens 1913. Passed away August 1976 in Athens just some minutes before a concert she would give at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus)
