do you know why benches fall apart?  it is because they have lids with little tiny hinges so you can store music inside them.  hint:  buy a bench that does not hinge.  buy it for sturdiness.

I find it difficult to list pianists i've never seen live - like Askenazy or Rachmaninov. I understand that you can listen to their recordings but it is not really the same as seeing a full performance - stage presence etc - plus with pianists i've seen more than once i haven't enjoyed every single one of their performances.

I'd say out of the pianists i've seen live:

Brilliant - Alfred Brendal, John Lill, Freddy Kempf, Imogen Cooper, Roy Howat

Pretty amazing -Stephen Hough (except when he did Rach 3), Barry Bouglas

Ok/alright - Edvard Kunz, Bernhard Roberts,

There are many others but i really can't remember them all...maybe their playing wasn't memorable enough.

Oh yeah i forgot to mention about the time i saw Liszt and Thalberg play in 1837...

1) Vladimir Horowitz & Josef Hofmann (the greatest pianists imo)

2) Georges Cziffra (I love his tone, technique and style)

in no particular order;

Emil Gilels (golden tone, fantastic octaves)
Sergei Rachmaninoff (the gorgeous rach 1)
Arthur Rubinstein (Mazurkas, ballade 1)
Alfred Cortot (pure poetry)
Marc-Andre Hamelin (for exposing me to non standard rep, for this I am eternally grateful)
Dinu Lipatti (for his Chopin waltzes, the only pianist besides Hofmann who makes these sound interesting)
Sergio Fiorentino (the more I hear of him the more I love him, I'd buy all his APR cds if they weren't so damn expensive)

Honourable mentions: Noel Mewton-Wood, Walter Gieseking, Moriz Rosenthal, Boris Berezovsky (though I HATE his Rach 3)

Uschida, for her Mozart and Schubert


Worse, for me:

...Pollini.

Yeah Naxos is cheap but that doesn't stop them from giving us some great recordings. Jeno Jandos WTC is probaly the best I've heard along with Richter and when it comes to Biret, she has a wonderful touch even if she screws up a lot of pieces.

Freddy's Transcendetal etudes is the number one reason and of course his Rachmaninov, his 2nd Rach Sonata is the best recording I have heard to date. A great pianist.

howard na? yes ive heard of him, one of the winners in the american chopin competition, notable for his abhorrence of technical fireworks, he is reputed to take 'Islamey' at an adagio pace, resulting in a grandiose 30 minute long donkey.

kuyvenhoven? yes, the 3rd prize winner at the liszt competition this year, phenomenal performances, amazing accuracy in the sonata.

john rusnak has a phenomenal technique too, he managed to breathe new life into the chopin etudes, and reached amazing spiritual heights in his goldberg variations.

steven turnbull is one of those names that rings a bell, but i cant put my finger on who he is, can you elaborate on whats so good about him?

From what I heard Madge is a phenomenal sight-reader. Rumours, he performed his first reading of Chopin-Godowsky complete etudes right on stage. The performance was put straight on 4CD set, and is a very valuable document.
His fresh insights in Opusclavicembalum explain popularity of the recording (live from the concert).



john rusnak has a phenomenal technique too, he managed to breathe new life into the chopin etudes, and reached amazing spiritual heights in his goldberg variations.


I can see his undoubtful artistic inspiration revealed in Goldberg Variations, but Chopin Etudes
Shocked Shocked Shocked
Why are they so fast???... I have to admit, his pedal work sometimes is quite amazing.

well, most people seem to think he's just another helfgott without the talent. but to me it's not about how well he can play (if at all), but what grave obstacles he had to overcome to become what he is today. such courage and determination really touches me, and shows what you can accomplish if you truly set your heart to it. a while ago i saw a news story of a pianist with 2 fingers on each hand. she played chopin's fantasie impromptu with such heartfelt expression that i was brought to tears. she revealed the honesty and dignity in the music. often times i suppose, turnbull's music speak to me in much the same way.

bolet is INCREDIBLE, i havent heard that much of his earlier recordings though, so i left him out of my list.

he has incredible delicacy and colour in his tone(especially in soft passages), equalled by VERY few.

Hamelin---i love you!!!yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
he's the only good french musician!!!

First of all I don't know if by french you mean who speak french or comes from France, but anyway, he doesn't come from France. Second, he's far from being the only good french musician.

Hamelin is Canadian, so I suppose you can say he's of French descent.


And Bolet is really cool.

He's from Montreal, yes. But his english is good.

A friend of mine had a relation with a guy from Montreal (yes extremely long distance). She lived there for half a year and his parents couldn't speak any english. And their french was funny too.
