Vintage Photos Series – Liberace

Step into the world of Wladziu Valentino ‘Liberace‘. With a career that spanned over four decades of concerts, recordings, motion pictures, television and endorsements he was most remembered for his extravagant costumes and his trademark candelabra placed on the lid of his iconic flashy pianos.

‘The Liberace Show’(1952) was what turned him into a musical icon starting as an unknown 15 minute television programme; the ratings rapidly grew when the audience witness the flamboyancy of Liberace and the expensive ornaments he added to his already unique performances. Throughout his life he received numerous titles and awards including; ‘Instrumentalist of the year’, ‘Best Dressed Entertainer’ and Entertainer of the year.
