More treasures. Thank-you so much for sharing these with us!

The older I get ... ha ha!... the more I have come to love and appreciate every note of Mozart. After all the empty rhetoric and sickening emotional impotence of the Rachmaninov sonatas, what a bloody relief.

Why so endlessly critical? Do you realize how many negative statements you include in your posts? This is just one of many, many examples.

Interesting that you missed the whole point of my post. And going back some months to the utter fool you made of yourself in criticizing my sincere love of Liszt's Il lamento, well nothing much you say here means anything to me, how could it possibly?

Please put me on ignore, and beyond my reply here I have no desire to interact with you in the future.

Thank-you and good evening.

What you call whining others would call pointing out that continually negative and nasty posts are inappropriate and arrogant. Criticizing another poster for the contents of their post is different from criticizing a great composer in particularly nasty language.

I certainly didn't miss the point of your post in the slightest. What I noticed is that you, as you do so often, found it necessary to throw in a mean spirited jab.

I must agree with argerich, but not regarding Rach. You're a whiner, plover. You seem to feel you're THE ONLY one above it all... to the point that you are the only one entitled to criticize anyone or anything. But the reality is that YOU are one of the more arrogant, nasty posters on the site and I'm not the only one who thinks so.

...this is quite hypocritical, as you have just trashed a great piece yourself.

Off-Topic Discussion Alert - let's not get too sidetracked. Even though I just contributed to it. grin



His "joke threads" don't bother me at all.

Guys, not on this thread, please...

I've got another couple videos coming within the next hour or so, including another Beethoven recital that came from the season he did the complete solo piano works of Beethoven.

I listened to Ondine, and it's much too mechanical and mundane for me. It's a fairy without its magic.

Thanks for sharing this. This is such a great listen I ended up playing the whole video today. I think it's a great selection that really shows the contrast between earlier and later works by Mozart. Especially the 2nd movement of 533 is really adventurous.

Says you. He keeps it a little restrained in the beginning, but there is so much color and depth in his sound. The way he builds up to the climax as the first time really digging into the piano... Incredible! Not to mention his liquid touch.

Path breaker, glad you enjoyed, it really is incredible stuff!

I saw him play some years ago at Curtis for one of their alumni recitals. He played the Beethoven sonatas Op 101, 106, 109 and 111...it was truly sublime. An experience I will never forget.

Anton Rubinstein played 8 Beethoven Sonatas in one recital. Moonlight, Tempest, Appassionata, Waldstein, Op.90,101,109,111.

Kuerti played all 5 Beethoven Concerti and the Choral Fantasy in one evening with a break in the middle for dinner.

Yea it was a heavy concert but what an experience. I was spent by the end. Just an incredible emotional drain, but his playing was fantastic.
