Volodos in Vienna

“You can keep your Lang Langs, your Yuja Wangs, your Evgeny Kissins… I’d swap their collective virtuosity for one evening of Arcadi Volodos’s consummate pianism. To my mind, he has produced nothing finer on disc than this live recital, captured in Vienna last spring.” — Gramophone Magazine Read more >>

I'm finding big scales in thirds going down to be much easier than ascending. I believe when I was doing the Busoni arrangement of campanella he had an ascending thirds passage where he took some notes out. I played it long ago so I can't determine if it was an actual simplification.

Anyone with experience on this or some ideas on removing notes going up?

I think it's better to figure out the technique and do it properly instead.
