Hey, don't count this guy out! I've heard he's a pretty formidable pianist laugh

Bartòk, apart from playing his own works, deeply admired the composers of the past:

I believe certain composers and their pieces in the less-played repertoire ought to be re-examined.

Some Youtube comments think she plays it too fast. I like it as a Toccata. Fast, light and even.

I don't believe Gyorgy Sandor has been mentioned yet.

Here's his 1961 recording of the Schumann Opus 7 Toccata.



I heard him play a recital in NYC in June 2001. He was almost 89 at the time and still managed to play a full program of works by Schumann (Fantasy Opus 17) and Bartok. It was amazing.

Talking of older pianists, here's the venerable Mieczysław Horszowski performing in Carnegie Hall at the age of 98:



And that's not his last concert by any means.....

An object lesson on how to live to 100: keep playing piano!


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
