hmmm well, particularly with jeux d'eau by ravel, its pretty important that it doesnt seem that u r fully exerting yourself(or being crazily passionate)...and cos its impressionistic, it has to flow nicely (no, not like a 'loose cannon')..i think argerich did that really well...so yeh, cant say i agree but then again i dont know her extremely well, just some of her recordings

The thing I like most about Argerich is her boldness; the thing I most dislike is her boldness. Sometimes it's thrilling; other times it's like the screech of scrap metal. I feel the same way about Pollini's Chopin Etudes and Gould's WTK. I guess I'm moody.

Argerich is the greatest living classical pianist. Bar none.

I have no problem with declaring the greatest composer of all times (it just has to be Bach... who else) but I do not believe there is a 'greatest pianist', whether living or deceased. There are many great pianists, they are all different and have their own unique strenghts and weaknesses. Comparing is a risky game, let alone designing one 'the best'. It's just what you look for in a pianist.

Argerich is good for Chopin, indeed, but who else does she play that well? Who else does she play at all?

rachmaninov - I find Kissin quite good, specially for Rachmaninov's stuff, and I haven't heard Lang Lang that much to judge. What do you think about him?



Still, I'll stay with my statement - Franz Liszt is the greatest piano player of all time! Unfortunately I don't own a single recording to prove it :)

I think kissin is to slow for rachmaninoff. Gilels and lugansky are my favo's for rachmaninoff
berman has the perfect rachmaninoff piano concerto 3 recording!

Yes, I think Gilels is good too. But still, when Rachmaninov comes to question, the pianist I prefer is Sergei Rachmaninov himself (although the recordings are very old). And the third concerto is the best one ;)

yeh, well okay, argerich mite not be the best pianist of all time...of course how can anyone be compared to liszt, bach (woh i wish i could hear him play his own pieces), rachmaninov....has anyone heard recordings of debussy playing his own music? its funny because he totally disregards his own markings haha :lol: obviously he can cos he's debussy and its his compositionfs
