Pianist's Pianist

The Czech pianist Ivan Moravec's recordings for Connoisseur Society were notable for their audiophile quality and nearly all of them remain available, long after the LP era, on CD reissues. He is described by New Grove as one of the finest Chopin interpreters of that century. Listen to Moravec recording and discussing Chopin. Read more >>

If there's no sheet music for this, then someone who has a good ear, PLEASE write out where he improvises and send it to me.

If you do that, I will form a religion around you.

I don't believe it's written down anywhere (unless someone has done a private version). I have pretty much all of Cziffra's written transcriptions, which are available from Edition Peters (2 volumes). This, sadly, isn't amongst them.

It doesn't actually seem to me so fantastically different from the original. You could probably work it iout yourself with the score and a couple hours in front of YT.

Be a nice break from your Bach week.  Grin

Volodos in Vienna

“You can keep your Lang Langs, your Yuja Wangs, your Evgeny Kissins… I’d swap their collective virtuosity for one evening of Arcadi Volodos’s consummate pianism. To my mind, he has produced nothing finer on disc than this live recital, captured in Vienna last spring.” — Gramophone Magazine Read more >>

 Cheesy Wheee!

Incidentally, if you like what Cziffra does to La Campanella, have a look at Busini's version (attached).

Thanks.  But since you don't have Cziffra's La Campanella, I won't worship you.

Moonlight Trapped in the Sonata Form?

How can we explain the immense popularity of the sonata for over two hundred years? What makes it so satisfying, so complete? Here we listen to a recent performance of the Moonlight Sonata by pianist Yundi Li from a popular TV-show in Japan. His interpetation is quite traditional with a slow and beautiful rendition of the first movement. But there is another completely different way to interpret it. Which do you prefer? Read more >>
