Richter playing scarbo ?!?
« on: August 15, 2009, 03:44:25 PM »
Is it me or is this an extract of Richter playing Scarbo?!? I didn't know this recording existed! Who has the complete thing?



The extract is at 2:40... does the complete video performance exist ? It MUST exist!

haha MANN thierry you need to get your eyes checked, you can clearly tell that's not him if not by his face/hair, by his hands at least.. you did the same thing with the supposed 'Rachmaninoff' video.

Huh, no this is not Jeux d'eau ... this clearly is the beginning of Scarbo, as for you da COMME, even now looking carefully I still think it really looks like Richter, and for the rachmaninoff thingy, well I didn't really pay attention, I just uploaded it as soon as I got it, and it was allready titled video of Rachmaninoff playing, so it's not really like it was me saying look it's Rachmaninoff! Anyways, until proofs proving the opposite, I still think the video of the beginning of Scarbo really is by him...

On sviatoslevrichter.ru  they say that Richter only played Le Gibet from Gaspard.

From the short glimpse of the face, it looks like Michelangeli.

too much hair for Richter.  And even when he had it, it was light brown.  And there's no black handkerchief in the piano so it can't be Michelangeli.

If the question is "which top pianists did not start playing the piano a an extremely young age", Murray Perahia did not start seriously practicing until he was 14.

Volodos also started like at age of 21 or 22, don't take my word but it's something similar.

He started late, but much sooner than 21 or 22...

Richter didn't play any Ravel except Clair de lune.

I'm just going to say "lol" to that comment, and leave it at that.
Interested in discussing:

What about his recording of "Le gibet", or his recording of all the mirroirs, or maybe his video where you clearly see him playing Jeux d'eaux? Better shut your mouth and look stupid than opening it and prove it.
