Just discovered Pianist James Rhodes awhile ago. Listened to about 4 other pianists play this piece and when I got to James I says to myself: "This is how a piano oughta sound."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwTJU8ga1zQ&feature=related

Have to spend more time listening to this artist.

Gave Valentina Lisitsa a fair chance with this piece and her Bosendorfer. Sounded very good but to my ears the treble of this piano is too mellow.

Seems as I continue to listen to concert pianists I grow more and more in favor of the Steinway sound.

Ah, yes. Especially the Hamburg Steinway (which is what this Rhodes guy is playing).

Here's another pianist playing a Hamburg Steinway. I love his efficiency, no excessive movements.

We have (had) the same teacher. *clang*

I quite like James Rhodes, but not this particular recording. The voicing is a bit all over the place.

Who's the dude in the oversized photo, and why is it on stage?

A former Moscow Conservatory faculty member perhaps? I love the playing, though!

The Debussy is stunning - who's playing it? And forgive me if it's you! Beautiful.
