His audience was made up mostly of a lot of old women who were nuts about him. Never understood that. And they never figured out he was gay. How they missed that is a complete mystery.

I believe the term for a slow tempo is lento not largo. Largo means 'broad'.

Lento and largo can both be interpreted as meaning slow, speaking broadly.

Please do accept LENTO for slow tempo ...

Go ahead ----> look it up anywhere ...

LENTO means "Slowly"

(Whereas LARGO may mean the same thing but they should BOTH be accepted)

Here's the comparison:

Largo – broadly (40–60 bpm) Lento – slowly (45–60 bpm) Larghetto – rather broadly (60–66 bpm) ... Adagietto – slower than andante (72–76 bpm) or slightly faster than adagio (70–80 bpm)

Thank-you!!

For the pianist question the only person I could think of was "Liberace", but he is neither Hungarian nor form the 19th century.

The band formerly known as Lady Antebellum are known now as Lady A, so the clue is a bit outdated.

Also I tried Lento and it no work no more :(
