Malcuzyński was a prominent Argentinian pianist of Polist birth. "Effective and stylish in Chopin – he conveyed both the patriotic fervour and the tender poetry of the music – he could be equally convincing in the large-scale works of Liszt, notably the Sonata in B minor and Vallée d'Obermann." James Methuen-Campbell in Grove Music Online.
