In this 1974 recording, Cuban pianist Jorge Bolet (1914-1990) performs Liszt's 1846 transcription of "Die Forelle" by Franz Schubert. I created this video from the LP depicted above, "Franz Liszt's Greatest Hits of the 1850s," issued on the RCA label in 1974, serial number LSC-3259.

The Library of Congress online catalog entry for this recording is available here:
