Craig Sheppard

i have a recording of sheppard playing the hungarian rhapsody no 12 and a bunch of liszt operatic transcriptions and i must say i find him quite amazing.  however i suspect you either love him or hate him- his tone is, in my mind, robust and powerful, yet to others it is probably calamitous and piercing.  

to spark interest in this post it's worth noting that he came second to murray perahia in the 1972 leeds competition, which i think is a terrible shame because he is really good- why does he deserve to fade into obscurity when he is still an extremely good pianist?
