Andras Schiff, Brahms and the Question of Tradition

oh yeah the minute waltz my god it was a toughie. whoever ranked them probably did it purely for the people who don't know what they're talking about to go straight to the challenging stuff to see if they can play it, find that they can and then think they're really fantastic
