Alexander's Playlist: Dang Thai Son's Chopin RecordingsBy Alexander NeefPosted in Alexander Neef Playlist
Last week, I recommended the work of Annie Fischer, whom I called an “insider pianist” – an artist of mesmerizing talents and emotional depth who has not received her proper due in our collective knowledge.

Annie Fischer is what I call an “insider pianist,” an artist who is highly regarded and praised among classical musical insiders but almost unheard of and unheralded among the general public.
