A piano recital by Fazliddin Husanov was held at Maidan Cultural Center on Wednesday September 28, organized by DAI, as a part of the 200th anniversary celebration of the birth of Ferenc Liszt, world renowned pianist, composer, conductor and teacher from Hungary.

We attended Fazliddin Husanov's piano recital yesterday. He gave a beautiful performance and the audience were quite enthralled with his amazing rendering. Photography was strictly prohibited, so I didn't take any pictures of the concert. The recital included the following:
