Emil Gilels, like Svjatoslav Richter, his fellow citizen from Odessa, liked to visit Prague, Mozart's beloved city. There, they felt free to leave aside their Slavic repertoire for tributes to the composer of the 'Magic Flute'.

Gilels plays here the Schumannesque Ballades by the young Brahms and the Fantasias Op.116. Mozart's Piano Sonata K533/494 has not been issued before.

Recorded Prague Spring Festival 24/5/1973 except Ballades (Czech Radio 10/5/78).
