His passing was announced by Milanís La Scala opera house on March 23. Read more >>

Hello ;) Does anyone on here collect bootlegs?   I have got tons of rare recitals by many pianists and would be delighted to arrange trades with fellow collectors; so donít hesitate to drop me a line! Thanks.

Just a few videos but hundreds of non-commercial recordings.  What about you?

I am looking for a recording by horowitz playing Rachmaninoff's 2nd. I don't know if he ever played it or not, but am looking for the recording.

hi- I am always interested in recital boots, and I once went so far as to put a really crappy little  tape recorder in my Mom's purse for a Horowitz recital....the sound was not so good, but what an incredible happening to witness. There is much evidence of me chuckling [unfortunately] during certain parts [eg. like when he was making a "Nosferatu-face" during the  b-minor Chopin Scherzo]. I would be interested in trading any lists of recitals....not that I have a ton by any means, as I stopped doing it quite a while ago because the obsession to accomplish the "task" and not BE in the moment really made for some paranoid recital moments [...and botched patch cords, and hence blank tapes] . But some day, who knows...I think I willl hang up the old condenser mic for good, [though...if I was at a  Hamelin recital where he played Szymanowowski Metopes, or some Medtner,Godowsky and Alkan...I wonder if I would go back on my word [heh heh] I'd like to think I wouldn't.     I hope to maybe hear from ya.Thanks a lot. I really dig the pianoforum!     peace, Sousa    ttp911@bluefrog.com
