GEORGES CZIFFRA - PIANIST

First edition, autographed and inscribed autobiography of the great Hungarian pianist in French.

Des Canons et des Fleurs, Cziffra, Georges, translated in French from the Hungarian by his son Gyorgy Cziffra Jr., Éditions Robert Lafont, Paris, 1977.

Cziffra’s memoirs reveal that despite his immense talent, that he lived a difficult life.  The book charts his early years in the 1920’s through his escape from Hungary in 1956, to the end of his life.  The book was also published in England in a limited run in English, 1996, two years after his death.

Cziffra autographs tend to be on the rarer side and this is a wonderful example.
