There are many great performers who lived before the advent of recorded sound of which we will never really know of their actual abilities, or even whether they were legendary virtuosi or not.  We trust in the contemporary accounts for this.

Was Lizt a great pianist performer? Or Beethoven in physical performance?

We do not know.. however where these people differ is one skill.. they were all composers of music, and so we can listen to the written works they created, and through this an idea of their physical presence to a degree at least.

A very primitive recording of Brahms playing piano barely survives, and is so muffled you have to listen carefully to hear him playing at all!

What we do lose in performer composers in living before advent of true audio  recording is the improvisational factor, as they sat down and freely played as they felt ..that is now lost to posterity.
