The Trusted Magician of the Parisian Avantgarde

Marcelle Meyer (1897-1958) was a major figure in the creation of new music from her participation in Erik Satie’s Parade in 1917 until her early death in 1958. She championed the works of Satie, Ravel, Debussy and Stravinsky, as well as the French Group of Six composers (Les Six), all of whom she knew personally. Her fluid phrasing, great dynamic range and lovely tone are just three of the hallmarks of her rare and individual playing. Read more >>

Just heard this, and it's completely floored me and risen straight to the top of my list of best performances. The power, passion and subtlety of this interpretation are stunning, I don't know if it's just me, but after listening to this, it's like listening to the piece for the first time again. It's made me totally re-evaluate how I'll approach the piece. Just had to say something, sorry if it's a bit inane.

Which one? 1932 or 1977?

The Horowitz recording from '32 is my favorite of the B Minor Sonata. (I also love Barere's 1947 performance from Carnegie Hall for it's sheer insanity)

1977 based on the clarity of the recording. I've not heard the '32, I'd love to though. His earlier recordings are not as readily available as the later ones, but I was lucky enough to find the 1930 Rach 3 with Albert Coates and the LSO- wow. Sheer mastery. If anyone's got the '32 sonata I'd be tremendously grateful if you could post it. Thanx in advance.

not insane.  horowitz did that to me as well with his recording of the sonata, as well as with his Mephisto Waltz recording.
